Diversity Research Grant for Predoctoral Candidates (Division 29)

The Diversity Research Grant for predoctoral candidates was established to foster the promotion of diversity within Division 29 and within the profession of psychotherapy. 

Deadline: April 1, 2015

Sponsor: Division 29


The division may award annually a $2,000 grant to a predoctoral candidate (enrolled in a clinical or counseling psychology doctoral program) who is currently conducting dissertation research that promotes diversity, as outlined by the American Psychological Association. According to APA, diversity is defined as individual and role differences, including those based on age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, religion, disability, language and socioeconomic status.

The Diversity Research Grant is expected to be used to support the completion of a predoctoral candidate's dissertation work. The grant may be used to fund: 

  • Supplies used to conduct the research. 

  • Training needed for completion of the research. 

  • Travel to present the research (such as at a professional conference).

One annual grant of $2,000 will be paid in one lump sum to the researcher, to his or her university's grants and contracts office, or to an incorporated company. Individuals who receive the funds could incur tax liabilities. All grant recipients will be required to complete an IRS form W-9 before funds are issued.
