American Psychological Foundation
APF and Div. 40 (Clinical Neuropsychology) seek nominations for the Henry Hécaen and Manfred Meier Neuropsychology scholarships. Both scholarships are one-year, $2,500 grants for graduate students who show promise or achievement in their scholarly and research activities.
The scholarships are funded through gifts from Arthur Benton, PhD, in honor of two neuropsychology colleagues.
To apply, send a letter documenting your scholarly or research accomplishments, your need for the financial award and what it will be used for. The letter should be co-signed by your faculty mentor or director of training after he or she has certified the accuracy of the information. Send seven copies of the letter and any supporting materials, such as a copy of the cited scholarly or research work, to Hécaen and Meier Scholarships, American Psychological Foundation, at the APA address. The application deadline is June 1.
Nominations for a grant of up to $10,000 offered by the Rosalee G. and Raymond A. Weiss Research and Program Innovation Fund are due April 15.
The grant supports innovative research-based scholarly work and psychology programs that advance the science and practice of psychology and improve human welfare. The fund favors proposals for projects examining violence prevention or the relationship between physical and mental health. Also favored are psychological studies or programs that demonstrate innovation and show promise of becoming self-supporting or leading to external funding.
Applicants should have a strong record of productivity within their proposed research area or programmatic activity. Recipients must submit a final report within one year of completing the project.
