Applicants cannot have previously won any of the SPSP travel awards (i.e., the International Travel Award, the Graduate Student Travel Award, the Diversity Graduate Travel Award, or the Teacher/Scholar award). If you received a 2021 Annual Convention registration award, you are not disqualified from receiving a registration/travel award in the future.
Applicants may apply for this award together with any other travel award for which they are qualified (see here for a full listing of available travel/registration awards). However, an applicant can receive only one of the awards.
Applicants must reside outside of the U.S. and Canada at the time of the conference. Country of residence will normally be based on the location of the applicants’ institution. Although individuals from any world region outside of North America are eligible to apply, applicants from underrepresented regions will be given priority in the evaluation process. For the purposes of this award, underrepresented regions include most countries in Southern and Eastern Europe; Asia, the Pacific Islands, and Oceania; Africa and the Middle East; and Central America, South America, and the Caribbean.
Graduate student applicants must be enrolled in a graduate program in psychology, and have research interests that fall broadly within areas of personality, social, or a related sub-field (e.g., political psychology, health psychology, cultural psychology, etc.). Undergraduate students are NOT eligible to apply.
Teacher/scholar applicants must teach and work primarily with undergraduate or Master’s level students, and have research interests that fall broadly within the areas of personality, social or a related sub-field (e.g., political psychology, health psychology, cultural psychology, etc.).
Undergraduate students are not eligible to apply.
Non-members are eligible to apply, but must become members to accept the award. Applicants from underrepresented regions may be eligible for dues reduction or exemption. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
International applicants may apply for this award together with any other travel award for which they are qualified (i.e., the Diversity Travel Award, Graduate Student Travel Award, or a Teacher/ Scholar Award). However, an applicant can receive only one of the awards.
The 2022 Annual Convention will offer two registration options: in-person experience or a virtual experience.
