American Psychological Foundation Invites Applications for Visionary Grants

The American Psychological Foundation is inviting applications for its 2020 Visionary Grants.

The APF Visionary Grants program seeks to seed innovation in the field through supporting research, education, and intervention projects and programs that use psychology to solve social problems in the following priority areas: applying psychology to vulnerable, at-risk 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); and understanding and eliminating stigma and prejudice (e.g., race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability and socioeconomic status).

Grants of up to $20,000 will be awarded through the program.

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.

To be eligible, applicants must be a graduate student or early-career researcher (no more than ten years postdoctoral) and be affiliated with a nonprofit charitable, educational, or scientific institution or a governmental entity operating exclusively for charitable and educational purposes.

See the American Psychological Foundation website for complete program guidelines, application instructions, and information about previous awardees.

Deadline: April 1, 2020
