SPSP is pleased to announce the return of our small grants competition at the 2019 annual convention, formerly Q&pAy, now known as Inside the Grant Panel (IGP).
IGP will showcase the grant applications of three small research grant finalists being evaluated LIVE by a panel of experienced social and personality grant reviewers on factors such as significance, research methods, innovation, budget, etc. In the end, the expert reviewers will pick a winner to receive a $5,000 grant for their research. The two runners-up will each receive $2,500.
About the Grants
Inside the Grant Panel will provide small grants to individuals (or a team of two) that is intended to support a relatively inexpensive, well-powered study that may be submitted for publication and for presentation at a future SPSP convention
Awards may be used to compensate participants (on-line or in-person), purchase supplies, travel to research sites, or pay research assistants. Funds may not be used for salary or travel to conferences, and no indirect costs will be granted to the awardee’s institution. If grantee’s institution cannot receive grants without direct costs being assumed, payments and tax-reporting responsibility fall upon the grantee.
Award recipients must submit a report of the research to SPSP within six months of the completion of the study and, if the research is successful, are expected to submit it both for publication and for presentation at the SPSP convention.
