In the midst of the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 crisis, SPSP is introducing emergency grants to assist members who may be experiencing a financial hardship due to the pandemic. SPSP members in the early stages of their career, including graduate students and Early Career members, are encouraged to apply for the Emergency Bridging Grants Program.
The goal of the grant is to allow these early career scholars to apply for and receive a $500 grant in July 2020 as bridging funds for things they might need, including but not limited to:
- Computer equipment
- Broadband service
- Research participant payment
- Child or elder care
