APF seeks proposals for research funding on giftedness

The American Psychological Foundation (APF) is encouraging doctoral-level researchers to submit proposals for a new grant program that offers up to $25,000 a year--for no more than three years--for research or programming on the psychological understanding of gifted children and adolescents.

The goal of the program, supported by the Esther Katz Rosen fund, is to support scholarly work that contributes to greater understanding and advancement of gifted children and their development and needs, as well as effective practices with gifted children. Seed money may also be provided to establish or expand in new directions educational programs or interventions designed to meet gifted children's academic or social needs. Special consideration will be given to innovative projects with potential to become self-supporting or to obtain external funding. Continued funding will be based on available funds and renewal evaluation reports submitted at the conclusion of each year of funding.
