American Psychological Foundation Accepting Applications for 2017 Visionary Grants

The American Psychological Foundation is accepting applications for the 2017 Visionary Grant program.

APF Visionary Grants are designed to fund innovation by supporting research, education, and intervention projects and programs that use psychology to solve social problems in four priority areas: understanding and fostering the connection between behavior and physical health to ensure well-being; reducing stigma and prejudice to promote unity and harmony; understanding and preventing violence to create a safer, more humane world; and supporting programs that address the long-term psychological needs of individuals and communities in the aftermath of disaster.

To be eligible, applicants must demonstrate competence and the capacity to execute the proposed work and be affiliated with a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

One-year grants of $20,000 are available for eligible projects.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, as well as information about grant recipients from previous years, see the APA website.
