The European Association of Social Psychology offers small grants to kickstart new research lines

Top tips:

  • As the grants support early-stage research you can include ideas that are not yet well-supported by previous studies.
  • Be clear about where you expect the project to lead and how you intend to continue the research in future.
  • The application form is brief, so think about condensing your proposal using tables or figures.

Researchers getting research ideas off the ground often have to rely on internal grants within their institution, but social psychologists have another option through Seedcorn Research Grants offered by the European Association of Social Psychology.
