The application must include an abstract, a description of the proposed project (described below), a curriculum vitae (CV), the proposed timeline for completion of the research, and a budget. Applications are due by January 12, 2018. Applicants must be members of SPSP and their dues paid for 2018 and at least one applicant from each project must be available for the Review Panel on Saturday, March 3 from 12:45-2:00pm. Priority will be given to applications that have already received institutional review board (IRB) approval. 

The Grant Panel will evaluate each proposal along the following criteria: (1) importance or significance of the topic to the field; (2) clarity and quality of the research methodology and analyses that will be conducted; (3) appropriateness of the budget; and (4) feasibility of completing the project within the timeline provided.  It is particularly important that applications include sufficient information to convince the Panel that the project will be completed to an ethical and publishable standard, so issues involving power, sample size, and planned analyses should be discussed.

Finalists will be announced February 9, 2018.
