Apply now for the Henry Hécaen and Manfred Meier Neuropsychology scholarships
The American Psychological Foundation and APA's Div. 40 (Clinical Neuropsychology) are seeking applications for the Henry Hécaen and Manfred Meier Neuropsychology annual scholarship program, which offers one-year grants of $2,500 each to two graduate students who show great promise or achievement in their graduate study and research in neuropsychology.
The scholarships are made possible through major gifts from neuropsychologist Arthur Benton, PhD, who wishes to honor two esteemed colleagues each year. The late Henry Hécaen was a French neurologist who was instrumental in the founding and development of neuropsychology as a science. Retired University of Minnesota researcher Manfred Meier, PhD, helped establish the university's neuropsychology laboratory, where he conducted psychological research on patients with epilepsy, cerebrovascular disorders and Parkinson's Disease.
The application deadline is June 1. Interested applicants should submit a letter that documents their scholarly or research accomplishments and explains their need for the financial award and how it will be used. The letter should be co-signed by their faculty mentor or director of training after he or she has certified the accuracy of the student's information. Send seven copies of the letter and any supporting materials (e.g., a copy of the cited scholarly or research work) to: Hécaen and Meier Scholarships, American Psychological Foundation, Attn: Amy Kiel, APF Program Coordinator, at the APA address.
