Grants

The Society for the Psychological Study of Culture, Ethnicity, and Race is launching its inaugural Annual Small Research grant. The purpose of the Small Research grant is to support empirical (i.e., qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methods) research by students or doctoral-level professionals on any topic related to promoting well-being among People of Color and Indigenous Peoples (POCI), including those consistent with the mission of the division: understanding culturally responsive service delivery and eliminating racism and social injustice against POCI. Other topics are suitable as well, including: racial, ethnic, and cultural identity, Indigenous/cultural-centered health practices, resiliency, healing from trauma, and ethnocultural processes.

The Division especially encourages proposals involving (a) timely research opportunities, (b) intersectional approaches (that is, research that considers the ways in which race, ethnicity, or culture intersects with other social identities such as gender, sexual orientation, and class), and (c) the voices or input of community members.

Funds do not cover travel to conventions, stipends of principal investigators, or indirect costs of institutions.

Award

  1. A cover sheet with primary investigator’s and all co-investigator’s names, addressed, phone numbers, e-mail addresses and title of the proposal.
  2. An abstract of 100 words or less summarizing the proposed research.
  3. Project purposes, theoretical rationale, and research methodology and analytical procedures to be employed.
  4. Relevance of research to the mission of Division 45 and to the broad topic of promoting well-being among POCI.
