Who Can Apply:
- The Zedeck-Jacobs Adverse Impact Research Grant is designed to offer support to researchers who are investigating causes and solutions to adverse impact in testing and selection. Adverse impact (AI) has been a recurring problem for decades, and although some findings have not only helped us to understand the problem and create modest solutions, we are still without a viable theory, consistent processes or programs to reduce or eliminate AI, or a body of research that informs the laws that govern employment practices.
- The objective of the grant is to offer research funding that will encourage scholars to engage in programmatic research that blends I-O psychology, public policy, and the law in efforts to further inform us on the underlying factors that lead to AI and methods for its reduction.
- The grant will be given to a member of SIOP or team (with at least one member who is a SIOP member) whose research will examine new approaches in the study of adverse impact and lead to new programs designed to reduce adverse impact. The recipient(s) with the best research proposal will receive grant funding of $3,000.
Deadline: June 30, 2023
