ISSI is pleased to announce the launch of a new mini research grant program aimed at providing research support for current Ph.D. students and people who have received their Ph.D. within the last 10 years in the areas of self and identity, broadly defined.
We will award up to 3 mini grants per year at a maximum of $1000 each. The award funds are to be used to cover research expenses after the fact (i.e., the research does not need to be conducted already, but the grant funds can only be used to reimburse documented, already-paid-for expenses). Examples of appropriate research expenses are participant compensation via online data collection platforms (e.g., MTurk, Prolific), research-related equipment, software, etc. Neither salary- or travel-related expenses can be reimbursed.
The below pdf contains more information about eligibility and rules. The deadline is midnight of Thursday, September 30, 2021. If you have questions about eligibility or the application process, you can direct them to Serena Chen (firstname.lastname@example.org).
You must be a member of ISSI to apply. Click here for membership information.
