#highlights: SRA 2016


On the 1st of October, Singapore Psychological Society organised the Student Research Awards 2016. Many abstracts were submitted over 3 categories, with keen competition for top honours.

  1. Diploma Group Category
  2. Undergraduate Group Category
  3. Undergraduate Individual category

SRA 2016 kicked off with SPS signing an MoU with MDIS (who kindly hosted SRA 2016) to help solidify and promote close working ties between both organisations for the benefit of all psychology students and future psychology related work in Singapore.

Thereafter, reviewers for SRA 2016 were presented with certificates of appreciation and it was a joy to hear laughter and cheers as each reviewer came up to receive their awards. Dr Tan Wah Pheow, Dr Foo and Prof Ken Greenwood even provided words of wisdom to all students present and gave feedback on how they felt reading the submissions. The reviewers were full of praise for the student submissions and Prof Ken even said that some of these essays were amongst the best he had ever read!

Soon after, the Diploma and Undergraduate students took to the floor, each presenting their own projects, ranging from bilingual language advantage to perceptions of elderly to coping styles for heart patients. It was definitely a great day spent learning, growing and interacting with students, reviewers and supervisors who took the time to come down and support their students.

SPS would like to thank the following reviewers for their hard work and effort taken in reviewing all submissions for SRA 2016:

  1. Dr Tan Wah Pheow (TP)
  2. Dr Foo (JCU)
  3. Professor Ken Greenwood (JCU)
  4. Dr Stephen Lim (NUS)
  5. Dr Annabel Chen (NTU)

Thank you to all students who submitted your abstracts and we truly hope that you had a good time with us.
