What We Fund
Scholarships and Fellowships
The American Psychological Foundation (APF) places a premium on developing psychological talent.
Graduate students encounter a number of financial needs in the course of their training, and APF is committed to trying to meet those needs so that the most capable students can thrive in the field. APF gives scholarships, dissertation funding, research support, travel grants, and fellowships to launch careers for graduate students dedicated to the discipline. Student support ranges from $300 for travel support to $25,000 for fellowships.
APF is seeking to seed innovation through supporting projects and programs that use psychology to solve social problems. APF grants align with our mission of enhancing psychology to elevate the human condition and advance human potential. We offer grants for Early Career Funding and Seed Grants for Research and for Targeted Programs.
Visionary Grants offer up to $20,000 for innovative projects and programs that meet APF’s four priority areas.
