CONGRATULATIONS SPSSI MEMBERS! 


The American Psychological Fund (APF) announced that Rezarta Bilali, PhD, of the University of Massachusetts—Boston, received $5,000 from the Drs. Rosalee G. and Raymond A. Weiss Research and Program Innovation Fund and $19,000 from the Visionary Fund to develop and test strategies to target the denial and justification of harm-doing by a group of individuals against another (such as mass violence), while at the same time fostering the conditions that lead to acknowledgment of the injustices done to the victim group and the restitution of harm.


Lindsay Phillips, PsyD, was presented the 2012 National Register's Judy E. Hall, PhD, Early Career Psychologist Award. The award is named for the National Register's current Executive Officer, Judy E. Hall, PhD, and recognizes excellence in a nationally credentialed psychologist with less than ten years of postdoctoral experience.

Fall Deadline for Grants-in-Aid Program

You saw the current list of grant winners on p. 24—why not apply yourself? Funding up to $1000 is available for graduate student research if proposals are accompanied by evidence of a request for appropriate university official agreement to match the amount requested.  Strong preference is given to applications from students at the dissertation stage of the graduate career. Such proposals must be accompanied by an appropriate official university agreement to match the amount requested. This matching requirement will not be waived for institutions that have adopted a policy of not providing matching funds to support graduate student research. Funding up to $2000 is available for research by SPSSI members who already have a Ph.D. Documentation of submission to the applicant’s Institution IRB must accompany every submission.

Deadline for submission is October 25, 2012. For application instructions, please see the Grants-in-Aid webpage.
