Society of Addiction Psychology Student Research Grant Call for Applications
News Date: Tuesday, April 10, 2018 - 20:00
The Society of Addiction Psychology (SoAP; Division 50 of the American Psychological Association) offers the Student Research Grant Program to support graduate student research in the field of addiction psychology. Three Student Research Grants of up to $1250.00 each will be awarded each year.
One proposal will be selected by the sitting President-Elect of SoAP based on how closely the project fits/integrates with that year’s presidential theme (President’s Selection).
This year’s presidential theme is: Reframing Addiction Psychology for the 21st Century: Beyond Diagnosis, Disease, and Treatment as Usual
The other awardees will be selected by the SoAP Grant Review Committee, chaired by Dr. Joel Grube. The committee will choose the top two grants, with a focus on the best clinical research grant and the best basic-science research grant. These annual awards will be presented to students whose research reflects excellence in addiction psychology and will be evaluated on the criteria detailed in the attached brochure. The award winners will be required to attend and present the findings from the funded research at either the annual American Psychological Association Convention or the annual Collaborative Perspectives on Addiction Conference. As part of the award, recipients will have their conference registration fee provided and will receive up to $500.00 in travel funds. This travel allocation is in addition to the allotted $1250.00 and does not need to be deducted from the project’s budget.
DEADLINE: All application materials must be submitted no later than 11:59PM EST May 11, 2018.
