Bruce L. Smith Personality Assessment Fund

This overarching fund, named in honor of SPA and SPA Foundation past president Dr. Bruce L. Smith, supports the Foundation's vision where SPA is the indispensable resource and advocate for personality assessment internationally. Your tax deductible gift to this fund supports the advancement of the evidence-based practice and impact of personality assessment through research, education, training, and advocacy. 

Donations to this fund support all of the SPA awards, as well as empowers emerging researchers with scholarships and support programs designed to nurture a more diverse community of practice within applied personality assessment. In addition, these funds will be used to support travel grants for students, early career professionals, and individuals from diverse backgrounds. 

Although we have a suggested donation of $25, the fund welcomes gifts of any size. Once you add this donation to your cart, you will be able to change the donation amount. If you would like to set up a recurring donation to this fund, please reach out to
