Every year, CASP presents the following awards to both school psychologists who’ve contributed exemplary work to the field, and those who show great promise.
Sandra Goff Memorial Award
CASP annually presents one Sandra Goff Memorial Award to an exemplary school psychologist who serves the profession not just in California, but nationally and beyond. Sandra Goff was CASP’s first Executive Director. The award named in her honor is a lifetime achievement award for truly longstanding, outstanding service to the profession.
Cultural and Linguistic Diversity (CLD) Scholarship
Every year, the California School Psychology Foundation awards a $1,000 scholarship to assist in meeting the need for increasing the number of culturally and linguistically diverse school psychologists.
Michael Goodman Research Award
The Michael Goodman Memorial Research Award recognizes the most outstanding research paper or poster presented at the annual CASP Convention. The application for this $500 award is included in the convention’s call for presentations.
Nadine Lambert Outstanding School Psychologist Award
CASP officially recognizes the outstanding work of school psychologists through the Nadine M. Lambert Outstanding School Psychologist Award. This award is presented to exemplary school psychologists who are competitively evaluated based on the nomination criteria.
Paul Henkin Award
The Paul Henkin Award, offered by the California School Psychology Foundation, offers students and first-year school psychologists financial assistance to attend CASP’s annual fall Convention. This prestigious scholarship is given to one graduate student and one newly credentialed school psychologist each year.
Fund programs like a Lunch Bunch by winning the Mini-Grant, offered by the California School Psychology Foundation. This grant is for programs and projects that directly benefit students for which school district funding may not be available.
