The Experimental Psychology Society is a rare source of funding for pilot studies
- Do not assume greater knowledge of your specific subject area than you would for a more generalist funder
- Similarly, you will need to explain your project’s importance in your field
- It is expected that grants will run for no more than a year; be realistic about what you could achieve in that time
- The application is short, so clarity is at a premium
The Experimental Psychology Society’s Small Grants are vital packages of funding for early career researchers in the field looking to kick-start a line of enquiry with empirical studies. They are open twice yearly to members, who will be mostly based in Europe.
