We are also currently taking donations to help our academic colleagues in Turkey and elsewhere academic freedom is threatened.

There are four main areas to which we are seeking your contribution:

John L. Sullivan Mentor Award

This fund supports the John L. Sullivan Mentor Award, given annually, starting in 2021. John L. Sullivan, Professor of Political Science, Emeritus, University of Minnesota, was central in establishing the political psychology program at the University of Minnesota as a joint venture of both the psychology and political science departments. His work has been central to the field for several decades, and his students and their students now form the core of the field. This award therefore honors faculty who, like Sullivan, have demonstrated an exceptional commitment to and a history of success in the mentorship of undergraduate students, graduate students and postdoctoral scholars. The John L. Sullivan Mentor Award is for faculty engaged in the field of political psychology.
