Research Training Grant
Share |


Due: February 1, 2020 for funding to begin early May 2020.

The Education and Training Committee and the Committee to Promote Student Interests are pleased to announce that SPR will once again provide Research Fellowship Training Awards. The award will allow students or postdocs to obtain mentorship/training in psychophysiological assessment/analysis with experts in the field, which they could not get at their home institution. This could involve travel to a remote site or travel expenses for a remote mentor to visit the applicant’s lab. Each applicant may include a budget of up to $5,000.00 U.S. (although smaller budgeted applications are encouraged and would allow for more applications to be funded). Up to $500 of these funds can be used to defray SPR conference travel costs. Applications are short (3-5 pages) but require that applicants, mentors and proposed training sponsors also submit biosketches.

The deadline for applications will be February 1, 2020. Award notices will be sent via email beginning April 1, 2020. If additional funds are available after April 1, 2020, a second application announcement will be made. Award notices will be sent within one month of this second announcement. Awardees will also be recognized at the Saturday Business Luncheon during the SPR Annual Meeting.

Eligibility: Preference for the award will be given to applicants, their current mentors and their proposed training sponsors who are active members of SPR, or who have a history of affiliation with SPR (e.g., previous membership, attendance at previous SPR meetings). However, all students or postdocs interested in obtaining mentorship/training in psychophysiology are encouraged to apply.
