Dr. Timothy Runge was honored as an Early Career Scholar by the Society for the Study of School Psychology (SSSP) in December 2008. Selection as an Early Career Scholar was determined via a competitive nomination and application process. The SSSP cosponsors the 2009 School Psychology Research Collaboration Conference as a mechanism to enhance the research efforts and skills of early career researchers who conduct psychological research relevant to education and the practice of psychology in the schools. This conference is designed to facilitate multisite research by encouraging interactions between early career researchers and senior researchers.

Through his attendance at this conference, Dr. Runge will obtain collaborative and mentoring support for his research; discuss important issues relevant to the application of research to education; and develop professional relationships for diverse networks of research, resulting in more opportunities for research and publication. The conference will be held August 4 and 5, 2009, in Toronto, Canada, preceding the 2009 American Psychological Association’s Annual Conference.
