To be able to fulfill our mission, SPSP relies on your donations to support our students, researchers, and professionals to further our field. You can support our mission and make a gift to one of our many initiatives below, such as empowering people of color through our Diversity Fund, sponsoring research of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds, or honoring esteemed colleagues through our Heritage Society.
Online donations are quick and easy, whether it's a one-time gift or monthly contribution. We welcome gifts of all sizes and all gifts are tax-deductible by law.
Graduate Travel Awards
Provide the opportunity for graduate students to travel to our annual convention, many of whom would be unable to present their research and network with crucial experts without your support.
To learn more about the students our Travel Awards support, please read their stories on our Travel Awards page. If you are interested in applying, please check out the Graduate Travel Award FAQ page.
Make a compassionate gift to diversify the field of Personality and Social Psychology. Diversity Awards are given so that students of color, first generation college students, LGBT+ students, and students with a disability may attend our annual convention.
To learn more about the students our Diversity Awards support, please read their stories on our Diversity Fund page. If you are interested in applying for an award, please check out the Diversity Awards FAQ page.
Graduate Student Training (SISPP)
Support the education of 100 pre-doctoral students attend a two-week intensive summer research internship to further their education. This is a life changing program that allows students to not only collaborate with one another, but make lifelong connections with experts and expand their understanding of Personality and Social Psychology.
Summer Program for Undergraduate Research (SPUR)
Make a gift so students from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups may attend an eight-week intensive summer internship. The underrepresentation of ethnic/racial minorities in social psychology is a detriment to the range of voices represented within our science. This program is designed to provide access to research opportunities that will spark students’ love for research and encourage their interest in graduate study in personality and social psychology.
Make a gift to honor our discipline’s most distinguished and renowned colleagues, teachers, researchers, and mentors. You may learn more about honoring an individual on our Heritage Initiative page or read about past honorees on our Heritage Wall of Fame.
Outreach and Advocacy
Support our field as we engage public officials about the importance of our science in Personality and Social Psychology. We maintain working relationships with Capitol Hill, US Senators, and other crucial public officials through our dedicated Government Relations Committee. You may read more about the public officials we work with through our Outreach and Advocacy page.
