FASP Research Awards (Proposal Guidelines)

The Florida Association of School Psychologists is pleased to announce the return of the FASP Research Award to support FASP student members in their research related to the practice of school psychology in Florida.

FASP is also pleased to introduce the Dr. Tom Oakland Research Award. This research award is designed to honor the memory and contributions of Dr. Oakland and to support FASP student members interested in conducting research aligned with much of Dr. Oakland's life's work. In particular, this award is designed to support research in one of three main areas: (1) school psychology related topics in an international or intercultural context, (2) diversity issues, or (3) issues related to social justice.
A Special Note of Thanks

FASP Research Policies and Procedures
The Florida Association of School Psychologists (FASP) encourages school psychologists to participate in research to increase the knowledge base about the practice of school psychologists in the state of Florida.

When the FASP Executive Board is asked to endorse a survey mailed to school psychologists, and/or when a researcher requests access to the FASP Membership Database, the survey must be approved by the Research Committee and the FASP Executive Board. Due to the high volume of requests to access FASP membership in recent years and to respect the valuable time of our members, the Executive Board has approved adopting a competitive review process of proposals to conduct research with FASP members.

Proposals will be accepted four times per year for consideration by the Research Committee and Executive Board:

  • January 1st
  • April 1st
  • July 1st
  • October 1st


Proposals will be evaluated according to the study’s relevance, timeliness, significance, appropriateness and consistency with current focus of FASP and ethical guidelines for our profession.

Prior to Consideration:
Before the Research Committee can consider a request for access to the database, a copy of the Researcher's Request to Access the FASP Membership Database must be submitted. In addition, we must receive a Copy of IRB approval; a Cover letter and/or email introduction to potential participants; and a Copy of the survey. FASP policy prohibits giving out the email addresses of its members, without express consent.
