The American Psychological Foundation is accepting applications for its Visionary Grants program.
Through the program, grants of up to $20,000 will be awarded to programs that use psychology to address social problems in one of four priority areas: violence prevention; understanding the connection between behavior and health (e.g., wellness, diabetes, obesity); understanding and eliminating stigma and prejudice (e.g., race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability, and socioeconomic status); and applying psychology to vulnerable, at-risk populations (e.g., serious mental illness, returning military, those who are incarcerated, and the economically disadvantaged).
Preference will be given to pilot projects that, if successful, would be strong candidates for support from major federal and foundation funding agencies as well as “demonstration projects” that promise to generalize findings broadly to similar settings.
To be eligible, applicants must be a graduate student or early-career researcher (no more than ten years postdoctoral) affiliated with a nonprofit charitable, educational, or scientific institution or a government operating exclusively for charitable and educational purposes.
