The National Register Awards Committee selected Dr. Kate Jansen to receive the 2011 Early Career Psychologist Credentialing Scholarship. Early Career Psychologist Credentialing Scholarships were developed in conjunction with the APA Committee on Early Career Psychologists. These scholarships help ECPs (within seven years of award of doctoral degree) become credentialed as Health Service Providers in Psychology by covering the cost of the credential review and registration fees. Also, Dr. Jansen was recently awarded her license from the MS Board of Psychology. Psychology Fellows must have at least one year of post-doctoral supervised experience, pass the Examination for Professional Practice of Psychology (EPPP), and go before the licensure board for an oral examination. Dr. Jansen completed all of these requirements in October 2011.
