The awards and submissions listed below are currently open. For questions about these or other awards/submissions, contact SPSP.


Who is eligible to participate in SISPP?

  • U.S./Canadian Graduate Students: Students  enrolled in psychology graduate programs in the U.S. and Canada, who are  SPSP members and who are enrolled in their second through fifth years of      graduate study at the time of application are eligible. First-year      graduate students are not eligible.
  • Postgraduate members of the European   Association of Social Psychology (EASP): These students will be      selected and financially supported by EASP. These members should not  apply through the SPSP portal. Instead, they should apply through the EASP  website. SPSP will accept five EASP postgraduate members (one per  course), who will be selected by the EASP.
  • Graduate students from outside the    United States and Canada enrolled in social-personality-related graduate    programs in countries that are not currently included in inter-organizational      SISPP exchange programs (that is, countries covered by EASP): Students   accepted for these slots will receive up to $750 in travel funds and a   registration waiver. Scholarship funds will be available to help with      travel expenses for these students.

How much does it cost to participate in SISPP?

The fee for each student is $225 USD, which covers tuition, housing in university accommodations (shared bedroom, shared bathroom), and meals. Students are responsible for their travel to and from SISPP.

What should SISPP participants expect?

· Connection with distinguished instructors on topics of cutting-edge theories and research

· Methodological workshops that explore innovative research methods and data analysis tools

· Networking with pioneers in their field to develop partnerships that will support our science

· Immersion in an environment of peers, rich in diversity and designed to support interactive collaborative opportunities

Questions? Please feel free to reach out to Lauren Booker at lbooker@spsp.org for more information about this opportunity.

The summer school is tentatively scheduled for the last two weeks in July, with students and instructors arriving Sunday July 16 and departing on Saturday July 29th of 2023



Eligibility
 To be eligible for an award, applicants must:

  • Be the first author on a poster accepted to SPSP 2023.
  • Be a student member of SPSP at the time of application for the award. 
  • Be a full-time graduate student at the time of submission (Undergraduate student applications should be submitted here: Undergraduate Student Poster Award)
  • Be available to present their poster in person at SPSP 2023 in Atlanta.
  • Present a poster that reflects the applicant's work, and not that of an advisor.
  • Work must NOT be in-press or already published.
  • Past winners of the Student Poster Award are NOT eligible. 

 Application Process
If your first-authored poster has been accepted for the 2023 SPSP program and you meet the other criteria, you may apply for a Student Poster Award by uploading the following documents:
1. A .pdf copy of the poster you intend to present at SPSP 2023.
2. A 500-700-word (maximum) summary of the research you will be presenting, in .pdf or .doc format.

The research summary should provide an overview of the research and offer complementary information that enhances your poster. This may include more detailed explanations of related literature and how the research question was formed, any secondary analyses and results, or information the presenter might convey in conversations with an audience at their poster presentation
Note: Any submission that exceeds 700 words will be disqualified automatically. In-text citations will count towards the word limit, but a reference list will not.
Competitive submissions will include each of the following sections (or sections equivalent to those) below:


  1. Background Information or Introduction
  2. Research Question(s) or Objective(s) 
  3. Hypotheses or Potential Outcomes (if the work is exploratory)*
  4. Impact (of project)
  5. Methods or Procedures
  6. Results or Analyses 
  7. Conclusions or Discussion
  8. Any in-text citation should be in APA format; a reference list is not required

 To improve the poster experience for presenters and attendees alike during SPSP 2023, posters are not required to include all sections described above. If posters do not include one of these sections, however, they should be addressed in the research summary.
In addition, while we encourage that final posters include a QR code (free resource: https://www.qr-code-generator.com/) or link to a personalized website where audience members may easily access further information about the research poster (e.g., Open Science Framework webpage), to ensure the anonymity of our submissions, we advise that applicants refrain from including an actual QR code and instead indicate where the QR code would be placed in the final poster. This may be done by adding a text box that could read, for example, '[Insert QR code here]'. Posters that do not include a QR code or link will not be penalized.
Note: If you are selected to present your poster at SPSP as a finalist, you will be allowed to make minor edits to your poster prior to the convention in order to incorporate reviewer feedback. However, you should consider the poster that you submit now to be a final version, ready to be presented at the conference.

Judging Criteria & Process
There will be two rounds of judging. Links to rubrics are posted below for each round.
Round 1: In the first round of judging, reviewers will evaluate posters based on their effectiveness in communicating main finding(s) or conclusions in a simple, easy to follow format. In addition, reviewers will provide an in-depth evaluation of both poster content and the accompanying research summary. Applicants Scores from this round will be used to select 30 poster finalists.
Round 2: In the second round of judging, the 30 final graduate student posters (exhibited at SPSP in the Student Poster Award Hall) will be evaluated by “secret judges” (typically faculty members). In addition to the criteria mentioned above, scores in this round will be determined on the basis of how well authors present their posters in person (e.g., their ability to answer questions, guide viewers through the poster, and communicate the important elements of the research presented).
For more information about what to include within each section of your poster and research summary, or for more details about the judging criteria, please reference the public judging rubrics for Round 1, and Round 2.
