SPP Diversity Research Grant
To highlight the importance of diversity in pediatric psychology research and clinical care, the Society of Pediatric Psychology (Division 54) has established a $5,000 research grant available to members of the Society who are predoctoral students or postdoctoral fellows. Funds are available to conduct pediatric psychology research that integrates diversity-related variables, such as culture, race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, language differences, socioeconomic status, and/or religiosity. Other aspects of diversity may be considered. Applicants will need to provide sufficient rationale for those areas in the cover letter to their submission. Examples of possible topic areas include, but are not limited to, health disparities, stigma, and culturally-relevant assessment and intervention.
