The Kansas School Psychologist of the Year award is intended to identify and recognize a KASP member in good standing who is an outstanding practicing school psychologist. 
The Lifetime Achievement Award acknowledges life-long efforts in the field of school psychology that embody NASP’s pillars of practice, but also contributed to the field of education for Kansas children. 

The KASP "Friend of Education" Award is given to individuals or groups outside the profession who have supported political action and advocacy on behalf of children to improve education and mental health services for Kansas children, youth and their families.

 This award helps to address the need to reframe the role of Kansas school psychologists as educational and mental health providers. The awards serves to validate those KASP members who are practitioners who are engaging in innovative health service delivery and working to meet the needs of children with increasingly more diverse and challenging needs.

The purpose of the KASP Minority Graduate Student Scholarship is to support the graduate training of promising school psychology students in the state of Kansas. Two students will be awarded $500 per year each fall. Students are eligible to reapply for a second year of funding.

The purpose of the action research program is to encourage and support innovative practices in school psychology, e.g., new models of assessment or alternative service delivery models. This program will only fund innovative projects; therefore, we cannot fund expansion of existing programs, programs that are the responsibility of a school district, those that have been previously funded by the district, or trips.
