Small Conference Grant Program

The Society for Personality and Social Psychology launched the inaugural application of the SPSP Small Conference Grants program in 2016 to provide funding for SPSP members who wish to host small conferences relevant to the personality and social psychology field.

Award Info


SPSP seeks to provide small grants to support personality and social psychological research at all levels, including conference support. Conference support is intended to assist SPSP members in their efforts to develop and host successful conferences. Conference support is not to be used for individuals to attend existing conferences or to support preconferences at the SPSP Convention.

Two levels of support are available:

  1. Up to $5,000 - Applicable to smaller meetings or meetings jointly funded by a number of organizations or entities
  2. $5,001 to $10,000  - Applicable to meetings mostly or solely funded through the current SPSP mechanism

Preference will be given to support of developing new Communities or building Communities within SPSP, though support would not be limited to these groups. 

** Applicants will be required to submit COVID-19 contingency plans as part of the application process. **
