Foundation / Corporation
American Psychological Foundation (APF) and American Psychological Association (APA) - Division 54
Grants of up to $5,000 to USA, Canada, and International university students and faculty members to conduct research projects focusing on understanding the emotional, mental, and behavioral aspects involved in injuries (such as those related to violence, accidents, suicide, or abuse) in children and adolescents. Funded research projects should ultimately lead to an understanding of how to prevent physical injuries in children and adolescents.
This program supports research into the psychological and behavioral aspects of the prevention of injuries for children and adolescents. Both intentional and non-intentional injuries are of interest, and illustrative topic areas include etiological precursors and contextual contributors to injury, development of measurement tools, development and evaluation of interventions, and dissemination/implementation of such interventions.
APF supports original, innovative research and projects. Although APF favors unique, independent work, the Foundation does fund derivative projects that are part of larger studies.
Proposals will be evaluated on:
- Conformance with stated program goals
- Magnitude of incremental contribution
- Quality of proposed work
- Applicant’s demonstrated scholarship and research competence
The ultimate goal of these grants is to improve the status of children in the face of the most significant threats to their health and development.
