EASP – European Association of Social Psychology

Early-Career Awards

Three Early Career Awards recognise early career research contributions to social psychology. Candidates should be full EASP members at the time of application. The selection panel will take into consideration the year in which applicants were awarded their PhD so that there are equal chances to receive the award depending on PhD award date.

The call for these awards is typically issued in the Summer prior to the General Meeting. Full members are encouraged to nominate candidates for these awards (please get in touch with the candidate you wish to nominate). Candidates may also self-nominate. In each case, candidates themselves should submit their CVs and two letters of support from full members. The application procedure will be clarified in the call for these awards. Awardees will be selected by a panel including one member of the Executive Committee and three full members of the EASP. The awardees will each receive a certificate and their registration fees for the General Meeting will be covered by the EASP.

For the awards to be presented at the 2026 General Meeting, candidates should have been awarded their PhD no earlier than 01 October 2021 and no later than 30 September 2024. This period can be extended by up to one year in cases where the candidate has taken leave (e.g., parental/carer leave). For the 2026 awards, this means that the PhD should have been awarded no earlier than 01 October 2020.
