Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grant to a USA, Canada, or International graduate student or psychologist for a public outreach project. Eligible applicants are researchers who are affiliated with a nonprofit institution. Research projects should address the difficulties experienced by adults living with visible physical disabilities, such as cerebral palsy. Preference will be given to proposals that contain a plan to disseminate findings to the public, especially through media organizations such as the Entertainment Industry Foundation or the Entertainment Industry Council.

Program Goals:

  • Encourage talented students and early career researchers to orient their careers to understanding the psychological effect of stigma on people with visible disabilities.
  • Develop strategies to improve the public’s understanding of the psychological pain and stigma felt by individuals with visible physical disability, in order to reduce harmful misconceptions.
  • Encourage dissemination of findings to the public, expressly through media.

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.
