Graduate Student Opportunity – Hyde Research Grants
Proposals are being sought for Hyde Graduate Student Research Grants. These grants, each up to $500, are awarded to doctoral psychology students to support feminist research. The grants are made possible through the generosity of Janet Shibley Hyde, Ph.D., who donates the royalties from her book, Half the Human Experience, to this fund. Past recipients of Hyde Graduate Student Research Grants are not eligible to apply. Because the purpose of this award is to facilitate research that otherwise might not be possible, projects that are beyond the data analysis stage are not eligible.
For application requirements and other questions, please contact the Hyde Award Co-chairs at the following addresses Dr. Mindy J. Erchull, email@example.com or Dr. Olivia Moorehead-Slaughter, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Application deadlines are March 15th or September 15th for the fall deadline.
