Arcus Foundation renews grant support for the LGBTI International Network

On Dec. 13, 2013, the Arcus Foundation awarded a grant of $300,000 over three years to support the work of the International Psychology Network for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex Issues (IPsyNet). The new grant will allow the IPsyNet and the APA Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Concerns Office to build on work made possible with a previous grant awarded in 2011, which was highlighted in an October 2013 article in the Monitor on Psychology®, "Fighting Discrimination Worldwide: APA's commitment to applying social science to protect and expand the rights of LGBT people is paying off."

The grant will be used to continue developing the capacity of IPsyNet and its member psychological organizations to advance the human rights and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people by increasing scientific knowledge and the application of knowledge about these populations.
