American Psychological Foundation grants available

The American Psychological Foundation is accepting proposals for Visionary and Weiss grants.  These one-year grants are designed to seed innovation through research, education, and intervention projects that use psychology to solve social problems. The programs emphasize the connection between mental and physical health to ensure well-being, reduce stigma and prejudice, prevent violence, and address the long-term psychological needs of individuals and communities in the aftermath of disaster.

APF encourages proposals from individuals who represent diversity in race, ethnicity, gender, age, disability, and sexual orientation.  Grants range from $5,000 to $20,000.  Additionally, a $10,000 Raymond A. and Rosalee G. Weiss Innovative Research and Programs grant is also available for programs that fall within APF’s priority areas.

The deadline for proposals is March 15th.  For more information and to access the grant application form, go here:
