Open Call for 2025 EAPP Collaborative Research Grants

The call is now open for the 2025 European Association of Personality Psychology (EAPP) Collaborative Research Grants. The aim of the grants is to support novel and high-level collaborative personality research projects involving at least two early career researchers (ECRs) from at least two different countries or distinct within-country regions. Applications involving researchers from Ukraine or other countries/regions underrepresented in personality research are particularly welcome in this call. In 2025, up to two grants of €10.000,00 will be awarded for any combination of eligible activities conducted over two years. The EAPP will assess applications on their scientific merits, while also considering gender, special circumstances, and geographic representation of applicants.

Applications should be sent to by 31 October 2024 (23:59 CET). All detailed information about the call can be found HERE.

Open Call for 2025 EAPP Networking and Travel Stipends

The call is now open for the 2025 European Association of Personality Psychology (EAPP) Networking and Travel Stipends. By sponsoring these stipends for early career researchers (ECRs), the EAPP aims to increase its regional scope and cross-national relationships among its members and support ECRs in building collaborative networks with European personality psychologists.

Two networking and travel stipends of €5.000,00 each will be offered in 2025. Money can be transferred upfront to a University’s department; or to the awardee after their stay, upon presentation of receipts.

Applications should be sent to by October 31, 2024 (23:59 CET), whom you can also contact in case of questions. All detailed information about the call can be found HERE.

2024 EAPP Mentoring Program

The EAPP Mentoring Program is starting again! This is the fifth round of the mentoring program, which pairs young scholars with more senior researchers. The aim is to offer an opportunity for early career researchers to discuss their work with an experienced researcher in the field who is not their advisor, and to ask questions, exchange ideas, and broaden their scientific network. The mentee-mentor pair can discuss specific research projects or discourse about broader topics related to research (e.g., grant writing, career planning, time management, etc.).

The EAPP Mentoring Program has been very well received in the past by both mentees and mentors, with the majority of participants indicating high satisfaction in the evaluation of the program.

To start off this year’s mentoring program, we are now looking for mentors and mentees who want to be part of this exciting program!

Mentors and mentees are expected to meet at least once during the summer either in person virtually via Zoom, Skype, or any other online platform or location of their choosing. We ask mentors to stay in touch with their mentees in the subsequent months by checking in via email and following up on the mentee’s progress. The beauty of this year`s version is that mentees and mentors even have the chance to initially meet up in person during the ECP21 in Berlin (in case both are attending, which is not mandatory).

Are you an experienced scholar with a passion for sharing your expertise and empowering the next generation of researchers? If you completed your PhD at least five years ago and hold a tenure-track professorship, we invite you to join us as a mentor. Your guidance can shape the scientific development of a mentee. Sign up now and become a mentor here:

Are you an early career scholar (PhD student or up to five years after PhD) interested in meeting and discussing with a more senior scholar from our field? If yes, please sign up here: 

Please sign up for the mentoring program until June 21, 2024.

After the sign-up is completed, the mentees will be asked to indicate their preferred mentors. While we cannot guarantee a perfect fit, we do our best to facilitate “matches” with good potential for compatibility.
