A Small Grant Competition
Date: Saturday, February 29, 2020
Time: 12:45 - 2:00PM
SPSP is pleased to announce the return of our small grants competition at the 2019 annual convention. Inside the Grant Panel 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, and innovation. In the end, the expert reviewers will pick a winner and two runners-up to each receive grants for their research.
November 15, 2019 – January 3, 2020: Applications open
February 3, 2020: Finalists announced
February 29, 2020: Inside the Grant Panel: New Orleans LIVE
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 and credit the grant in any resulting publications. Awardees are also encouraged to submit completed research for presentation at a future SPSP convention.
