International Society of Political Psychology

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 has tended to favor proposals to help hold political psychology mini-conferences in locations where there are no such gatherings, to provide networking opportunities for political psychologists in such regions and beyond. The committee has also 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.

ISPP's small grants process for 2018 is now CLOSED. The call for proposals can be viewed HERE. The listing of countries by tier is available HERE. The deadline for proposals was 15 December 2017. We expect to send out notifications the week of 12 March 2018. Please send any questions to the ISPP Central Office via email.
