As part of its effort to foster collaborative research, the GT Psychology Department has allocated $2,000 to support new graduate student initiated interlab research. Collaborations across areas are especially encouraged. Any number of graduate students can partake in a single PIG project, however, each student must be able to contribute something unique. Projects that are already funded will not be considered.
PIGs are in amounts up to $2,000, meaning that the entire PIG fund can go towards supporting a single project or apportioned to support multiple projects, depending on the proposals received.
PIGs can be used to cover the cost of participants, training, and/or hardware/software, or other research related expenses. Any hardware/software that is purchased with PIG funds becomes the property of the Department of Psychology at the conclusion of the funded project. PIGs cannot be used to pay for travel or as stipends/salary.
