$100,000 for Your Project
Letters of Intent Due July 1, 2019
What would you do if you had $100,000 to shape the future of work?
SIOP and the SIOP Foundation have launched a new $100,000 grant to support I-O research and practice addressing visionary opportunities in the world of work.
Nearly 100 people have become Visionary Circle donors in support of this exciting new venture. These Visionary Circle Donors, each of whom has donated at least $1,000, will ultimately select the winning proposal. This year is the first cycle of what we expect to be an annual grant competition.
The $100,000 Visionary Grant offers funding to I-O professionals and colleagues, enabling them to conduct Visionary projects, meaning project looks to the future of work, brings I-O psychology into another realm, asks new questions, and/or engages with other disciplines to create something new in terms of I-O praxis – the synthesis of knowledge and application without privileging either. (Note: The principal investigator must be a SIOP member.)
Winning this grant has three stages: 1. Submitting a letter of intent, 2. If invited, submitting a full proposal, and 3. If selected as a finalist, presenting the project plan very briefly during the 2020 SIOP Conference in Austin TX.
Stage 1: Letter of Intent is closing July 1, 2019, so don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity to receive funding.
