Q&pAy is a small research grant competition held at the SPSP annual convention, and our version of the “Shark Tank” television show. Applications are currently being accepted for the 2017 competition. We had a chance to catch up with the 2016 participants, Tina Sundelin, Ashley Whillans, and Adam Morris to see how their research is progressing, what they gained from taking part in Q&pAy, and more.

This summer, four undergraduates packed their bags and moved across the country (and, for one student, around the world) to spend eight weeks working hands-on in a lab that corresponded to their research interests. These students, Roxie Chuang, Deanna Ibrahim, Maria Escobar, and Precious Hardy, participated in SPSP’s new Summer Program for Undergraduate Research (SPUR). SPUR is an intensive internship experience for undergraduates from under-represented ethnic groups. Roxie’s SPUR Experience: Building Professional Relationships
SPSP member Dr. Lisa Neff was featured in a recent issue of “Setting the Record Straight on ‘Wasteful Research’”, a series by the Consortium of Social Science Associations (COSSA) which provides researchers whose work has been mischaracterized by lawmakers the opportunity to set the record straight about their work’s value and potential, as well as to confront misconceptions about federal government-funded social science research.
