American Psychological Foundation (APF)
Grants of up to $1,000 to USA, Canada, and International graduate students and early-career psychologists affiliated with nonprofits, schools, or government agencies. Funding is intended for research, education, or intervention projects that explore how psychology can solve social problems in the following priority areas:
- Understanding and fostering the connection between behavior and physical health to ensure well-being.
- Reducing stigma and prejudice to promote unity and harmony.
- Understanding and preventing violence to create a safer, more humane world.
- Supporting programs that address the long-term psychological needs of individuals and communities in the aftermath of the disaster.
Preference will be given to 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.
APF encourages applications from individuals who represent diversity in race, ethnicity, gender, age, disability, and sexual orientation.
Proposals will be evaluated on:
- Innovative and potential impact qualities
- Quality, viability, and promise of proposed work
- Clear and comprehensive methodology
- Practicality of budget
