About the Minority Fellowship Program
The APA MFP is an innovative, comprehensive, and coordinated training and career development program that promotes psychological and behavioral outcomes of ethnic minority communities. MFP is committed to increasing the number of ethnic minority professionals in the field and enhancing our understanding of the life experiences of ethnic minority communities.
The principal aim of the MFP is to provide financial support, professional development activities, and guidance to promising doctoral students and postdoctoral trainees with the goal of moving them toward high achievement in areas related to ethnic minority behavioral health research or services. Our mission and aim are consistent with Healthy People 2010, the Surgeon General's Report on Mental Health, The President’s New Freedom Commission on Mental Health, and other federal initiatives to reduce health disparities.
To participate in our community of over 1,400 trainees in psychology and neuroscience at over 100 institutions, we invite you to apply to one of our competitive programs. We stand ready to assist you throughout your career!
