Sponsored by: The Sophie and Shirley Cohen Memorial Fund and SPSSI membership contributions, The SPSSI Committee on Grants-in-Aid (GIA) wishes to support 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.

Funding up to $1000 is available for graduate student research if proposals are accompanied by evidence of a request for appropriate university official agreement to match the amount requested. Strong preference is given to applications from students at the dissertation stage of the graduate career. Such proposals must be accompanied by an appropriate official university agreement to match the amount requested. This matching requirement will not be waived for institutions that have adopted a policy of not providing matching funds to support graduate student research. Funding up to $2000 is available for research by SPSSI members who already have a Ph.D. Documentation of submission to the applicant?s Institution IRB must accompany every submission. In exceptional circumstances the amount may exceed $2000. The usual grant from SPSSI is for up to $2000 for post-doctoral work and up to $1000 for pre-doctoral work.

Application Details: The applicant must be a member of SPSSI. Applicants may submit only one application per deadline. If an applicant has applied to the Clara Mayo Grant in the same award year (July 1 - June 30), she or he is not eligible to apply for GIA. Individuals may submit a joint application.APPLY ONLINE NOW!
