SPSP is pleased to announce Xuan Zhao (Brown University) is the winner of this year’s Q&pAy. Q&pAy is a live small grants competition, hosted at the SPSP annual convention, which showcases three small research grant finalists pitching their grant proposals to a team of social and personality experts on stage who ask questions about the grant (significance, research methods, budget, etc).
