Psi Chi, the International Honor Society in Psychology was founded in 1929 as a way for students working on research projects to get together and discuss their research. Since then, Psi Chi has grown to include many other functions such as community service and educational projects. The national chapter still holds research competitions and provides grants for its members. With over 800 chapters and thousands of members, Psi Chi is one of the largest and most respected honor societies in the country. It is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies and is an affiliate of the American Psychological Association (APA) and the American Psychological Society (APS). The society publishes both Eye on Psi Chi, a quarterly newsletter which unites members and recognizes their accomplishments, and the Psi Chi Journal of Psychological Research, which includes empirical research authored by Psi Chi members.
