International Travel Awards

In order to encourage and facilitate the participation of international students to participate in SPSSI’s biennial conventions, we sponsor a limited number of International Travel Awards. Applicants are not required to present research at the conference.  

Up to 5 grants, in the amount of $500 each are typically awarded to international scholars for travel to the SPSSI convention.

To be eligible for a travel award, an applicant must:
  • be enrolled in a PhD program or a member of a college or university faculty in psychology or a related social science discipline.
  • be a resident of a country outside of North America. 
  • be a dues-current SPSSI member. Applicants may join at the time they submit their international travel application.
  • submit a brief statement explaining how their participation at the conference would be consistent with the goals of the program.
Exclusions: Winners of the SPSSI Graduate Student Travel Award or Diversity Travel Award are not eligible for concurrent or future International Travel Awards. 

Award Presentation: Awardees must attend the SPSSI convention in order to receive the award. Travel awards may be used to cover all conference-related expenses up to a maximum of $500, including transportation, lodging, food, and conference registration. Award payments are made only in the form of post-conference reimbursement for documented expenses with original receipts.

Application Deadline: The deadline to apply for 2008 Diversity Travel Awards is Friday June 6, 2008. Send all applications to abalkissoon@spssi.org.
 
Decision Notification: SPSSI will notify all applicants of the award decisions by Friday June 13, 2008.


Research that produces nothing but books will not suffice.
