Application Deadline: May 15, 2017
The Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI) is currently offering two grants for psychology-related research with upcoming deadlines.
The Grants-in-Aid 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. The applicant must be a member of SPSSI. Applicants may submit only one application per deadline. Graduate student awardees will receive up to $1,000 in funds.

The Clara Mayo Grant program supports 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. Individuals must be SPSSI members and have matriculated in a graduate program in psychology, applied social science, or a related discipline. Up to six grants will be awarded each cycle. The maximum amount of any grant is $1,000. Proposals that include a college or university agreement to match the amount requested will be favored, but proposals without matching funds will also be considered.
