Minority Fellowship Program


The APA MFP is an innovative, comprehensive and coordinated training, mentoring and career development program that enhances psychological and behavioral outcomes of ethnic minority communities. MFP is committed to increasing the number of ethnic minority professionals in the field and advancing our understanding of the life experiences of ethnic minority communities.

Principal Aim

Our ultimate goal is to help promising graduate students, postdoctoral trainees and early career professionals achieve lasting success in areas related to ethnic minority psychology. To this end, the MFP provides financial support, professional development activities, and opportunities for professional and personal guidance.
