Past recipients of Hyde Graduate Student Research Grants are not eligible to apply. Because the purpose of this award is to facilitate research that otherwise might not be possible, projects that are beyond the data analysis stage are not eligible.

Please send all application materials attached to a single e-mail message to both of the Hyde Award Co-chairs at the following addresses by September 15th (or March 15th for the spring deadline):

Dr. Mindy J. Erchull, merchull@umw.edu and Dr. Olivia Moorehead-Slaughter, oms@parkschool.org

4. A one-page statement articulating the study's relevance to feminist goals and importance to feminist research.

5. The expected timeline for progress and completion of the project (including the date of the research proposal committee meeting). The project timeline should not exceed two years.

Review Process

A panel of psychologists will evaluate the proposals for theoretical and methodological soundness, relevance to feminist goals, applicant's training and qualifications to conduct the research, and feasibility of completing the project.

Other Requirements:

Only one application will be accepted per student, for each application deadline. Applicants who are involved in multiple projects that meet the submission requirements should choose the project that best fits the evaluation criteria (see "Review Process").

Within 24 months of receipt of the grant, recipients are expected to submit to the Hyde committee co-chairs a complete and final copy of the research document (e.g., a copy of the thesis, dissertation or journal manuscript based on the sponsored research), along with a 500-word abstract for publication in Division 35 newsletter.
