Small Research Grant Program

The Small Research Grant is especially intended to provide seed funding to help such individuals successfully apply for larger grants. Grant applications must include an abstract, a description of the proposed project (Abstract Research Question, Goals of the Study, and Significance to Social-Personality Psychology Research Design and Methodology and Planned Analyses), a curriculum vitae (CV), the proposed timeline for completion of the research, and a budget. We seek bridge funding to support our first project, before we secure large scale grant funding. The purpose of the proposed research is to validate a scale designed to capture this feature the Conservative Resistance to Change Scale.


The Research Development team within Grant Services Analysis offers proposal editing, manages limited submissions, develops online resources, presents various proposal-related workshops, oversees bridging funding, supports large-scale proposal efforts, and facilitates the annual R01 Boot Camp program. The goal of the Proposal Preparation Funding Program is to provide funds to support the submission of large-scale, multi-investigator grants this program is not designed to provide support for submission of individual R01-type grants. REMEMBER: their grant routing deadline is before the sponsor deadline. The Proposal Review Checklists can be used to verify the completeness of the documents required in a grant application prior to routing the proposal.
