This Award is in memory of Professor Blazej Szymura, whose scientific career in personality and individual differences was cut-short by his tragic death at the age of 40. Blazej actively promoted the aims of the International Society for the Study of Individual Differences (ISSID), and was involved in facilitating the international collaboration of psychologists. ISSID offer this award, up to a maximum $1000, to help fund travel/accommodation expenses of an early career researcher so they can attend and present at the next ISSID conference – the conference fee will be waived.
Eligibility for Award:
You must be an early career researcher, under 40 years of age (or within 5 years of completion of PhD), in the area of personality and individual differences;
If still a student, you will be undertaking postgraduate (Masters or PhD, or equivalent) level research;
You will clearly demonstrate that you would not be able to attend ISSID without this financial award. (Preference will be given to applicants from outside USA/UK; however, exceptional cases will be considered from these countries.)
It is desirable that you present material at ISSID encouraging international collaboration between psychologists (e.g., cross-cultural studies or studies that include collaborative work by psychologists from different countries).
Applications consist of: (1) cover letter to the Chair of the Selection Panel; (2) a two page statement, including: (a) why you think you are eligible for this Award and (b) the topic of your talk; and (3) a copy of your CV, and (4) a letter of support from your Head of Department or School (or Professor in your Department/School). These materials may be sent to the President of ISSID.
Deadline for Applications: March 1st, 2021
