American Psychological Foundation Accepting Applications for Visionary and Weiss Grants
Deadline: March 15, 2010

The American Psychological Foundation is a nonprofit philanthropic organization that provides scholarships, grants, and awards to advance the science and practice of psychology for the understanding of behavior and the benefit of human welfare.

The APF’s Visionary and Weiss grant programs seek to seed innovation through the support of research, education, and intervention projects and programs that use psychology to solve social problems in the following priority areas: understanding and fostering the connection between mental 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; and supporting programs that address the long-term psychological needs of individuals and communities in the aftermath of disaster.

One-year grants are available in amounts ranging from $5,000 to $20,000. In addition, a $10,000 Raymond A. and Rosalee G. Weiss Innovative Research and Programs Grant is available for any program that falls within APF’s priority areas.
