The SPSP Diversity Fund provides support to increase the
degree of diversity within personality and social psychology. With financial
support from this fund, qualified graduate students from underrepresented
groups are invited to apply for travel awards to attend the SPSP conference.
The award includes up to $500 in conference-related expenses, and students do
not need to present any research at the conference in order to
qualify. The SPSP Diversity and Climate Committee also hosts a reception
for award recipients during the conference, where they will have the
opportunity to meet with an admired scholar in social and personality
psychology of their own choosing. Donations to the Diversity Fund helps sustain
the Diversity Fund Travel Award program and may be used for new initiatives to
make SPSP, Inc. a more diverse and inclusive organization.

information, including information about the Diversity Fund Graduate Travel
Award and information on diversity within psychology.
