Kenneth B. and Mamie P. Clark Fund – Jun 15

American Psychological Foundation invites applications for Kenneth B. and Mamie P. Clark Fund
The American Psychological Foundation invites applications for the Kenneth B. and Mamie P. Clark Fund, which is named in honor of the first and second African Americans to receive PhDs from Columbia University. The Clarks’ doll experiments, in which they asked children to express their likes and dislikes about brown- and white-skinned dolls, led them to conclude that segregation in schools and society was psychologically damaging to children.
Through the fund, a single grant of up to $8,000 will be awarded in support of research and demonstration activities that promote the understanding of the relationship between self-identity and academic achievement, focusing on children in grades K-8.
The grant award alternates every other year between an early-career psychologist and a graduate student and, in 2022, will support a graduate student.
To be eligible, familiarity with the Clarks’ work is essential.
For complete program guidelines, application instructions, and information about previous recipients, see the American Psychological Foundation website.
Deadline: June 15, 2022
