Grants, Awards and Travel Funds

SPR Research Fellowship Training Award

Due July 1, 2014, for funding to begin early October 2014.
The Education and Training Committee and the Committee to Promote Student Interests are pleased to announce that SPR will once again provide Research Fellowship Training Awards. The award will allow students or postdocs to obtain mentorship/training in psychophysiological assessment/analysis with experts in the field, which they could not get at their home institution. This could involve travel to a remote site or travel expenses for a remote mentor to visit the applicant's lab. Each application may include a budget of up to $5,000 U.S. (although smaller budgeted applications are encouraged and would allow for more applications to be funded). Up to $500 of these funds can be used to defray SPR conference travel costs. Applications are short (3-5 pages) but require that applicants, mentors and proposed training sponsors also submit biosketches. Recipients will be announced at the Saturday Business Luncheon at the SPR annual meeting in Atlanta. Eligibility for the award requires that applicants, their current mentors and their proposed training sponsors be active members of SPR in good standing and have previous/ongoing involvement with SPR (e.g., attendance at previous SPR meetings). Other things being equal, preference will be given according to history of involvement in SPR. Eligibility for the award further requires attendance at the 2014 SPR meeting; awardees should plan to attend the business lunch unless religious restrictions prevent them from doing so. The deadline for applications will be July 1, 2014. Click here to download an application.
