Description

The Barlow grants support innovative research, education and intervention efforts that advance psychological knowledge and application in understanding and fostering the connection between behavior and health.

Preference will be given to early career psychologists (seven years or less postdoctoral); 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/or to other settings.

One annual grant of up to $7,000 will be awarded. Barlow grant applicants may also consider applying to APF's Visionary grants.
