American Psychological Foundation Invites Clinicians Addressing Areas of Critical Societal Need to Apply for Pearson Early Career Grant
The American Psychological Foundation's Pearson Early Career Grant is designed to encourage early career clinicians to work in an area of critical societal need.
The program's goals are to support psychology's efforts to improve areas of critical need in society, including but not limited to innovative scientifically-based clinical work on serious mental illness, serious emotional disturbance, incarcerated or homeless individuals, children with serious emotional disturbance, and adults with serious mental illness; and to encourage early career psychologists to devote their careers to underserved populations.
Applicants should be psychologists with an Ed.D., Psy.D., or Ph.D. from an accredited university, and be no more than seven years postdoctoral.
One grant of $12,000 will be awarded. The recipient may use grant monies for direct administrative costs of his or her proposed project. An additional $1,500 will be awarded for travel costs for the recipient to attend the following year's American Psychological Association Convention. APF does not allow indirect institutional or overhead costs.
Complete program guidelines and application procedures are available at the APF Web site.
