APF’s Campaign to Transform the Future is securing funding for students and new psychologists.

In today's economy, graduate students and early career psychologists face considerable challenges securing funding, particularly federal grants. That's why last year, the American Psychological Foundation launched its Campaign to Transform the Future, with a goal of raising money for students and psychologists who are pursuing cutting-edge research and projects.

APF believes that grants to students have a multiplier effect, as funded students will go on to collaborate with colleagues, mentor students and continue to help people as they advance in the field. The campaign is especially interested in supporting projects that have the potential to change the way we think and live in the world.

Specifically, the campaign seeks groundbreaking research, education, and intervention efforts that advance psychological knowledge and application in:

  • Understanding the connection between behavior and health.
  • Reducing stigma and prejudice.
  • Understanding and preventing all forms of violence.
  • Addressing long-term psychological needs in the aftermath of disaster.
