The Heritage Fund Initiative is designed to celebrate personality and social psychology's heritage by honoring some of the great teachers and scientists who have made major contributions to field. In doing so, the Initiative is aimed at ensuring the field’s future heritage by assisting its next generation of scholars. The Initiative allows students and colleagues to honor a cherished mentor by raising funds to establish an award in their name. Once sufficient funds have been raised, that mentor is placed in the Heritage Wall of Fame. FPSP has begun to use these funds to underwrite Heritage Dissertation Research Awards, which support graduate students conducting their dissertation research.
