EASP launches Double Burden Corona Relief Grant

easpEuropean Association of Social Psychology (EASP) has established a Double Corona Burden Relief grant. This is due to the growing evidence that researchers with double burdens (e.g., homeschooling children or caring for family members while also working) suffer proportionally more in terms of scientific productivity during the Corona pandemic. This situation is particularly detrimental to women, as it exacerbates existing inequalities, and junior scientists without a permanent position (see also these articles on the impact of COVID-19 on science). EASP hopes that this grant will help members continue disrupted research.

We hope that other parties will follow suit by making similar arrangements for their members. For more information on how to apply for these grants, visit
