Annual Campaign: International Awards
SPSP designates a particular program yearly to fundraise for that may not already have a designated fund. This helps to offset expenses and provide additional support for our members.
SPSP offers two international focused awards which you can donate to today. The International Travel/Registration Award which provides funds to offset the cost of atteneding the Annual Convention and the International Bridge-Building Award which serves as an incubator for testing creative ideas to help build connections and communication across the world.
Make a compassionate gift to diversify the field of Personality and Social Psychology.
SPSP offers Diversity Registration/Travel Awards so that students of color, first generation college students, LGBT+ students, and students with a disability may attend our annual convention. Read the stories of the students impacted by these awards and learn more about applying for an award here.
Donations to the Diversity Fund help sustain these awards and additional programs organized by SPSP leadership and the Diversity and Climate Committee (e.g. Community Catalyst Grants, Undergraduate Diversity Breakfast, Graduate Diversity Admired Scholar Meet-up). Please visit SPSP Diversity Initiatives for more information.
Graduate Travel Award
Provide the opportunity for graduate students to travel to our annual convention, many of whom would be unable to present their research and network with crucial experts without your support.
To learn more about the students our Travel Awards support, please read their stories on our Travel Awards page. If you are interested in applying, please check out the Graduate Travel Award FAQ page.
Graduate Student Training
Support the education of 100 pre-doctoral students attend a two-week intensive summer research internship to further their education. This is a life changing program that allows students to not only collaborate with one another, but make lifelong connections with experts and expand their understanding of Personality and Social Psychology.
