Small Grants Program
In 2008, the ISPP Governing Council decided to use a portion of the income from ISPP investment funds for small grants that further the goals of ISPP. The purpose of these modest grants is to “strengthen our organization, to expand international membership, and to promote excellence in political psychology. Priority will be given to events or activities that include participants from diverse geographic locations, enhance the visibility of ISPP, promote membership, and increase awareness of the journal.
While any proposal related to political psychology is welcome, the Allocations Committee for 2009 favored proposals to help establish a political psychology conference in the Balkans, to network political psychologists in Eastern and Southern Europe and beyond. For 2010, the committee has underwritten conferences on genocide, on the development of democracy in the former communist countries of Eastern Europe, and on development of democratic understanding in the South Caucasus. The Committee has chosen not to support proposals for research funding, for travel, or for paying for invited speakers. Nevertheless, every proposal will be considered fully.
The 2013 Small Grants have been awarded. Check back in late 2013 for the next Call for Proposals.
