The Executive Committee of SPR is delighted to announce the first call of the Taylor & Francis – SPR Emerging Scholars’ Program.
The aim of the Emerging Scholars’ Program is to provide support for young, talented scholars who (1) show promise as psychotherapy researchers and significant contributors to the field, and (2) are economically challenged and require financial assistance to attend the international meetings.
Eligible scholars should be within 5 years of completing their doctoral degree or psychiatry residency training. More senior scholars who are entering the field of psychotherapy research for the first time may also be considered.
The award will be made available annually to regular SPR members who are in good standing within the Society of Psychotherapy Research (i.e., paid, up-to-date membership in SPR). Applicants must demonstrate economic need and professional promise. They must also present a program of interest, including two specific proposals for studies. Confirmation of presentation at the upcoming international SPR meeting is also required. An award committee, nominated by the Executive Council of SPR, will review the applications.
Between two and four awards of $2500 per year will be conferred each year. Successful awardees may hold their award up to a maximum number of three years. Continuation of each award in the second or third year will depend on achieving specific outcome criteria. The award committee will be responsible for this review. Expected outcomes are: two submitted manuscripts after 1st year and an additional two submitted manuscripts after 2nd year. Grant proposals can be substituted for manuscripts.
Each awardee will be assigned a mentor from SPR based on his/her area of interest who will provide guidance during the term of the award.
The due date for submitting 2017 applications will be March 15, 2017.
