What is the deadline?

  • The application process for this research grant program is open all year round. You can apply at any point through the year. Also, when filling out the application form, you can indicate when you want to begin the program, whether that’s immediately or in 6 months or so from the day of your application.

Do I have to be accepted to present at a conference within the 3 months of my program?

  • No, the conference can be within a year from being accepted to the program. However, the study, data analysis, and poster must be completed within the 3 month program.

What happens if I cannot complete my project in 3 months?

  • Participants are expected to complete their projects in 3 months. However, performance will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

Can I do a study based on my own idea instead of one of the provided options?

  • Yes! If you come to the program with an idea for research, you may discuss the feasibility of this idea with your mentor.
    • Note: If you have already completed a project using Labvanced, we can modify the aspects of the Research Grant Program to reflect this. You will still apply to receive the benefits of the program, including conference registration!

Can I participate in the Research Grant Program using a project that I am completing as part of my degree in university?

  • Yes, we can accept Bachelor or Master Theses projects as well as other projects conducted in an undergraduate degree. Funding of PhD projects or projects conducted as a PostDoc will requite additional justification of the personal funding situation, as well as an outstanding level of scientific excellence.

I am a Principle Investigator and am curious about this grant program for my students. Can I have more information?

  • All information is available in the Program Handbook which is available upon request. Additional questions can be directed via email to [email protected] with the subject header "Research Grant Program."

Is this an internship?

  • While the Labvanced Research Grant Program offers some degree of collaboration and mentorship, it is not a psychology internship per se. Internships usually have clear tasks and orders, like a taste of the job environment. The Labvanced Research Grant Program does have some similarities with an internship, for example there are some financial benefits and support from psychology experts through remote meetings. However, the work is completed largely independently with some advice and input as needed.
