Awards and Funding

AWARD CATEGORIES / CRITERIA FOR AWARDS

All entries should be submitted electronically and in English (UK). The Psychology of Sexualities Committee reserves the right to not make an annual award in any of the categories. The decision of the Committee is final, and no correspondence with respect to unsuccessful applications will be engaged in. Unsuccessful applicants may be invited to re-submit to an alternative category and/or in future years. Applications will not be considered in more than 2 consecutive years. In exceptional circumstances an overall winner and one or more 'highly commended' prizes may be awarded in the categories.

By accepting an award winners are agreeing to publish in Psychology of Sexualities Review (full length article for undergraduate and postgraduate student awards and research award, shorter article/piece for practitioner and community engagement award). To be eligible for the student awards and the research award the submitted work must not have been published elsewhere. Award winners are expected to make themselves available to attend the Section Annual Event (usually December) to make a short presentation and receive their award.
