Grant of up to $1,000 to a USA, Canada, or International graduate student or early-career psychologist affiliated with a nonprofit, school, or government agency for an innovative research, intervention, or education project. The project will use psychology to solve social issues.
Priority areas include the following:
- Applying psychology to at-risk, vulnerable populations (e.g. serious mental illness, returning military, those who are incarcerated or economically disadvantaged)
- Preventing violence
- Understanding the connection between behavior and health (e.g. wellness, diabetes, obesity)
- Understanding and eliminating stigma and prejudice (e.g. race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability and socioeconomic status)
Preference will be given to early career psychologists (ten years or less postdoctoral), and pilot projects that, if successful, would be strong candidates for support from major federal and foundation funding agencies, and “demonstration projects” that promise to generalize broadly to similar settings in other geographical areas and/or to other settings.
Most APF programs allow for a wide range of direct costs. Examples include (but are not limited to): participant payments, supplies, technology expenses (software, hardware, imaging, etc.), travel to conduct research, travel to disseminate findings, stipend/salary support, course buy out and supplemental training. Budget proposals must be accompanied with a thorough justification.
