SCP announces its 10th Annual Dissertation Proposal Competition. The winner will receive $1,000, and two runners-up will receive $500.

In addition to the monetary award, the three recipients will present their research at Winter Society for Consumer Psychology Conference and will be recognized at the conference.

 (Non-award recipients are also eligible for consideration in the Conference Competitive Paper or Working Paper sessions.)

The following guidelines will be used to evaluate proposals: 

  • Proposals should relate to a topic in the consumer psychology area.
  • Submissions should be in the proposal stage, since a key goal of the competition is providing feedback to improve dissertation quality. This means: 
    • Final data should not have been collected by the submission date.
    • The work may not have been submitted for journal publication.
