The Clara Mayo Grants: Application Deadline October 15th
The Clara Mayo Grant program was set up to support masters’ theses or pre-dissertation research on aspects of sexism, racism, or prejudice, with preference given to students enrolled in a terminal master’s program. Studies of the application of theory or the design of interventions or treatments to address these problems are welcome. ELIGIBILITY: Individuals who are SPSSI members and who have matriculated in graduate programs in psychology, applied social science, and related disciplines. A student who is applying for a Grants-In-Aids may not apply for the Clara Mayo award in the same award year. Applicants may submit only one Mayo application per calendar year. Please visitwww.spssi.org/claramayogrants for more information and to apply online.
Fall Grants-in-Aid: Application Deadline October 20th
Funding up to $1000 is available for graduate student research, with strong preference given to applications from students at the dissertation stage of the graduate career. Funding up to $2000 is available for research by SPSSI members who already have a Ph.D. The program supports scientific research in social problem areas related to the basic interests and goals of SPSSI and particularly those that are not likely to receive support from traditional sources. The Committee especially encourages proposals involving (a) unique and timely research opportunities, (b) underrepresented institutions, graduate students, and junior scholars, (c) volunteer research teams, and (d) actual, not pilot, projects. Funds are not normally provided for travel to conventions, travel or living expenses while conducting research, stipends of principal investigators, costs associated with manuscript preparation, or the indirect costs of institutions.
