The EASP seeks to support consortia of members (all levels) that want to investigate meaningful social-psychological contributions to assessing and/or alleviating the psychological burden of the Corona virus crisis, or the consequences of COVID-19. To do so, grants of a maximum value of 5.000 Euro are available. Eligible costs include participant remuneration, research assistance, and other research costs. Grants can be paid to institutions or individuals. Receipts for expenses need to be provided. Unfortunately, the funding does not include any overhead.


  • Work conducted under these grants must contribute directly to knowledge on how to assess and/or alleviate the psychological burden of the Corona virus crisis, or the consequences of COVID-19.
  • Dissemination strategies beyond scientific publications must be documented. Collaboration with community partners is encouraged. Focus solely on student populations is discouraged.
  • Research must be conducted immediately after approval, and outcomes (i.e., data, materials and results) must be made available asap (include analysis plan and dissemination strategy, and ‘pending’ ethics approval)
  • The relation of the research project to social psychology should be spelled out in the proposal.
  • A budget plan must be included, as well as a statement of feasibility (e.g., regarding access to participants)
  • Grants must be applied for as a consortium, following the diversity policy of the EASP.
