The Society for Research in Child Development is now accepting submissions for its 5th annual Small Grants Program for Early Scholars. Grants of up to $7,500 are available on a competitive basis for research projects conducted by SRCD early career members who completed their doctoral degrees in the past five years. We especially encourage applicants from those based in international institutions and/or those conducting research in under-represented countries.

The funding priorities for these grants include a proposed project that:

  • Exemplifies exceptional scientific merit,
  • Will contribute to the applicant’s competitiveness for external funding and/or career advancement, and
  • Furthers SRCD’s strategic goals.

All components of the proposal package must be submitted through the application portal for the proposal to be reviewed.
