Research Seminar Competition
The Competition provides grants to enable institutions to co-operate to hold a series of at least three scientific seminars.
The proposed seminars should have tangible goals and should focus on developing and extending the understanding of a psychological process in any field of scientific psychology.
Four grants are available each worth up to £3,000. These provide funding for travel and accommodation expenses for those attending the seminars.
How to Apply
As a minimum of two institutions will be involved, submissions should be made by a primary applicant and a co-applicant, at least one of whom should be a Society member. Further details and an application form are available from the Board Administrator.
