The Relationship Researchers Interest Group (RRIG) allied with the Society for Personality and Social Psychology (SPSP) presents an annual award to a graduate student who has published an empirical manuscript that makes original and important contributions to relationship science.

A paper may only be submitted for consideration once.

Submission materials: To be considered for this award, please send the following:
