Interdivisional Grant deadline nears
$25,000 is up for grabs in the 2013 Interdivisional Grant Program sponsored by the Committee on Division/APA Relations. The program is designed to support joint activities that enhance the work, interests or goals of two or more divisions. Examples include, but are not limited to:
Furthering APA's goals of working to advance psychology as a science, a profession and a means of promoting human welfare.
Projects that promote collaboration between the science and practice of psychology.
Fostering the recruitment of ethnic minorities into psychology, APA or division membership or APA governance.
Activities that focus on a currently unaddressed topic or area in psychology.
Proposals must meet the following requirements to be considered by CODAPAR:
Projects must be sponsored by at least two divisions. Priority will be given to projects that demonstrate significant collaboration between the sponsoring divisions.
The projects may not duplicate an activity currently being undertaken by another APA office or group.
The project must be completed within 12 months of receipt of funding. If projects will extend beyond 12 months, proposals must indicate which deliverable tasks will be funded by the grant in the initial 12 months of funding. Failure to complete the funded deliverable tasks within 12 months may render participating divisions ineligible for future IGP requests.
For more information on how to apply and for a list of pasts recipients, visit the IGP website.
If you have questions about your project, feel free to contact any member of CODAPAR.
