SPSP is pleased to announce two new International-focused registration awards. These awards help attendees take part in the 2021 virtual convention by assisting with the cost of registration.
International Bridge-Building Award
In order to facilitate our science to encompass the full range of human experience, this award was created this year to serve as an incubator for testing creative ideas that would help build connections and communication among personality and social psychologists across the world.
Specifically, the award is intended for attendees from underrepresented regions of the world to create an event at the conference to help connect a community of researchers in underrepresented regions with those attending SPSP. Awardees will receive up to a maximum of 1,500 USD to support the proposed activity, as well as complimentary registration for the Annual Convention in 2021.
An initial description outlining the proposed activity is due on July 30, and a final proposal is due on September 15. Application period: July 9 - July 30 (September 15).
International Registration Award
For many international researchers, the location of the SPSP annual meeting often puts attendance out of reach. While this is not the case for the 2021 meeting for those with access to high-speed Internet, the cumulative impact of the effect of travel costs continues. This award is an effort to offset this impact.
Specifically, the award is intended to support students, as well as teachers and scholars who teach and work primarily with undergraduate students, located outside of the U.S. and Canada. Individuals from underrepresented countries are especially encouraged to apply. Awardees will receive complimentary registration for the Annual Convention in 2021. Application period: July 9 - July 30.
