Small Grants Program 2018

Grants for Peace Psychology Research, Education, or Community Projects 

The Society for the Study of Peace, Conflict, and Violence: Division 48 of the American Psychological Association invites applications for small grants for research in peace psychology, development of peace psychology education programs, or community projects involving the application of peace psychology.

The purpose of this grants program is to foster the development of the field of peace psychology through research, education, and the application of peace psychology in community projects. For example, a research project might investigate the relationship between interpersonal empathy and attitudes about international conflict resolution; an educational program might involve a series of presentations on peace psychology; and a community project might involve development of a forum for problem solving discussions between community groups with conflicting interests

Grant applications may request between $300 and $1,500. Approximately half of the grants will be awarded to graduate students or persons within five years after obtaining a terminal degree.

Grant awards may be used for travel, staff, clerical assistance, materials, postage, and other budgeted expenses approved by the Small Grants Committee. Grant funding may not be used for institutional charges for administration of the grant, travel to conventions, stipends for principal investigators or project directors, or living expenses while conducting the project.

Submission Deadline
Applications will be accepted through May 15, 2018 and the Division 48 Small Grants Committee will announce decisions by June 15.

Eligibility and Restrictions
The Society welcomes applications from anyone with the qualifications to conduct the proposed project, including graduate students and persons from all nations. Members of the Small Grants Committee and members of the Division 48 Executive Committee are not eligible to apply for a grant during their terms of service or office. A person is eligible to receive only one grant in a three-year period.
