Sharon Manne Graduate Student Research Award Application
The Sharon Manne Graduate Student Research Award is designed to facilitate the research and professional success of graduate students in the Psychology Department’s PhD programs who are studying questions within the broad domains of health psychology, clinical psychology, and behavioral neuroscience that address important and timely mental and physical health issues. Students in developmental and social psychology may apply if their research is focused on aspects of physical and mental health. The award will fund both basic and applied investigations.
Dr. Manne is currently a Professor in the Department of Medicine at the Robert Wood Johnson School of Medicine and is the Associate Director of Cancer Prevention & Control at the Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey. She was a doctoral student in ASU’s clinical psychology program and was mentored by (among others) Alex Zautra and Irwin Sandler. She is extremely grateful for the intellectually rigorous training she received at ASU, and wishes to facilitate the research and professional development of ASU graduate students.
A total of $25,000 is available to be awarded, and the Manne Award Committee may elect to use the funds to support more than one meritorious application. Funds can be used for study-related expenses, with the operating principle being that the funds should enhance a student’s research and its eventual dissemination. The award may be used to facilitate aspects of a master’s or dissertation project for which a student’s mentor does not have sufficient support. However, the award can also be used to support pilot studies that fall outside the purview of the master’s or dissertation project. The quality and originality of the research is a paramount consideration.
To apply for the Manne Award, please submit a proposal that includes the following components:
DUE DATE: Please submit all materials online by 5 PM on May 1, 2020.
Funding Availability: Funding for the project will become available on July 1.
