The American Psychological Association (APA) will sponsor four Advanced Training Institutes (ATIs) in the summer of 2013. These intensive training programs are hosted at research institutions across the country. They expose advanced graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, new and established faculty, and other researchers to state-of-the-art research methods and emerging technologies. Participants also have the opportunity to meet other scientists with related interests.

The four ATIs are listed below. Complete information about these programs can be viewed on the Advanced Training Institutes website:

• Structural Equation Modeling in Longitudinal Research
University of California, Davis
May 28-June 1, 2013
Application Deadline: March 20

• Exploratory Data Mining in Behavioral Research
University of California, Davis
June 3-7, 2013
Application Deadline: March 20

• Research Methods with Diverse Racial & Ethnic Groups
Michigan State University
June 10-14, 2013
Application Deadline: March 25

• Non-Linear Methods for Psychological Science
University of Cincinnati
June 17-21, 2013
Application Deadline: March 25

APA chose to sponsor these particular ATIs in response to continued interest among researchers. When offered previously, these ATIs drew substantial numbers of participants and received highly positive ratings.

The ATIs on Structural Equation Modeling and Exploratory Data Mining will be held at UC Davis in consecutive weeks. In order to help make it feasible for people to attend both of these ATIs, participants who are accepted and register for both sessions will receive a 20% discount on their tuition for each institute.

Tuition for each ATI ranges from $300 to $1200, with students, post-docs, and APA members paying lower tuitions. Participants may also apply for financial assistance.

APA arranges for group rates at on-campus or nearby lodgings and encourages all ATI participants to stay at the same location. Prices for accommodations have been negotiated at competitive group rates. For the UC Davis and Michigan State ATIs, the institutes will be held in the same conference hotel as the group lodging. The Cincinnati ATI will be held on-campus and participants will have the option to stay in very economically priced on-campus housing.

Note that ATI application deadlines begin in March. Applications are available at the Advanced Training Institute website and must be submitted electronically through each institute’s webpage:
