Funding Source:

American Psychological Foundation (APF)

Deadline Date:

04/01/17

Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants ranging from $10,000 to $20,000 to USA, Canada and International scholars for research that encourages innovation through programs that use psychology to solve problems in the areas of the connection between behavior and physical health, understanding and preventing violence, and addressing the needs of individuals and communities affected by disaster.

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 to other settings.

Proposals will be evaluated on:
- Innovative and potential impact qualities (introduction of proven interventions in a similar setting, minor extensions of established theory, or work that has little chance of replication or use beyond the proposed setting do not qualify as innovative or impactful)
- Quality, viability, and promise of proposed work
- Criticality of proposed funding for proposed work (mere contributions to larger funded efforts, or “add-ons” that could/should be carried out under that funding are discouraged)
- Clear and comprehensive methodology
