KS Yang Travel Award
KS Yang Travel Award History
Professor Kuo-shu Yang is the founder of indigenous Chinese psychology. He has worked his entire career promoting the development of psychology indigenous to Asia, and set up this fund through generous contributions from individuals in Taiwan.
In recognition of the huge range of conditions facing social psychologists across different countries in Asia, Professor Yang established an endowment to enable young scholars in economically developing countries to attend the AASP conference.
Hence, the KS Yang Travel Award is administered by AASP to provide financial assistance for deserving young scholars from developing countries to attend the biennual conference.
