Mary Jo Kupst Trainee Grant for Research in Resilience

Deadline: October 15
Sponsor: Division 54


This award was initiated in part through funds from the 2012 Society of Pediatric Psychology (SPP) regional conference in Milwaukee to honor Mary Jo Kupst, PhD’s career contributions. It is designed to help facilitate trainee research that will provide a novel contribution and advance the field of pediatric psychology specifically in the area of resilience. A yearly award of $1,000 will be made to a trainee who proposes a research project examining resilience and/or family functioning with a pediatric psychology population. The award is available to any graduate student, intern or postdoctoral fellow who is a member of SPP and involved in a program involving substantial training in pediatric psychology. The research project for which funding is requested must be conducted under the supervision of a faculty advisor and may include work leading to a master’s or doctoral degree or may be an independent study.

The funds are intended to support research scholarship to be completed while a trainee is enrolled in a graduate program or in a postdoctoral fellowship position. Funds are not provided for convention and meeting travel, indirect costs of the university, stipends of principal investigators or costs associated with manuscript preparation.
