2021 Undergraduate Conference Fee Waiver Program


The Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI) is pleased to announce the newly expanded 2021 Undergraduate Conference Registration Fee Waiver Program.  Up to 15 undergraduate student conference registration waivers will be given for registration to the 2021 SPSSI Virtual Conference.

Eligibility Requirements:

  1. Applicant must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate program in psychology or related discipline. Postbaccaluareate students are also eligible to apply provided they are currently working in research laboratory or closely with a faculty member on a research project with plans to enter graduate school.
  2. Preference may be given to a member of an underrepresented group (these groups are defined as ethnic and racial minorities; first-generation college students; lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered students; and students with a physical disability). Given that SPSSI is an international organization, applications from international students from underrepresented groups will be considered; applicants should explain how their participation at the conference would be consistent with the mission of SPSSI and how they will benefit from attendance.
