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.
