EAPP Scholarship 2018

The European Association of Personality Psychology (EAPP), in cooperation with the ECP19 Organizing Committee, is offering twenty scholarships to support postgraduate students and early career researchers who have limited access to financial resources to attend the ECP19. Each scholarship includes 250 Euro and the payment of the conference fee. Those who wish to apply for funding should present a poster or a paper at the ECP19. Applications by letter or email should be sent at the conference e-mail address before December 1st, 2017.

Applications are invited for postgraduate students from all countries who wish to attend the ECP19. This opportunity is also extended to early career researchers (up to 5 years post-PhD), and those who cannot access other support funds. Applicants are expected to submit an abstract of a poster or a paper at the conference (note that the closing date for submissions is November 15th, 2017).

EAPP Awards 2018
The European Association of Personality Psychology (EAPP) promotes honouring and recognizing scientific achievements by awarding researchers at various career levels. Since 2012, EAPP has implemented a system of three awards focusing on different career stages. The purpose of these awards is to raise the visibility of personality psychology both to the scientific community as well as to the general public.

ECP Poster Awards
Poster presentations are an important and efficient means to exchange ideas and research findings in modern scientific conferences. The EAPP has tradition to award poster presentation of the highest quality since the 9th European Conference on Personality (Guilford, UK, 1998). The purpose of these awards is to increase the importance, impact and quality of poster presentations.
