Dissertation Research Grant
Dissertation Research Grant in Developmental Psychology
The Dissertation Research Grant supports the dissertation research of an outstanding graduate student member of Division 7. One to three of these $500 grants will be awarded each year. The in-progress research must significantly advance content knowledge, methodology, and/or theory in developmental psychology. Criteria include the project’s importance, innovation, feasibility, funding needs, and likely contribution to the field, as well as the applicant’s record. Eligible doctoral students are within one year of successfully defending their dissertation proposal (or the program’s equivalent requirement) at time of application for the dissertation grant. The dissertation proposal must have been approved by the dissertation/orals committee (or the equivalent, depending on the doctoral program requirements). Applicants must be nominated by their faculty supervisor. Awardees will submit a report at the end of their dissertation, describing the results and how the funds were used; this report should be suitable for posting on the Division 7 website or publication in the newsletter. Funds cannot be applied to conference travel. Applications will include a letter of recommendation from the faculty supervisor, the student’s CV, a one-page budget with justification (e.g., why the funds are needed), and a two-page single-spaced research proposal outlining the research question, the rationale for the study, the methodology, the significance, and the expected contribution to knowledge.
