APF Seeks Applications From Early Career Psychologists Investigating Serious Emotional Disturbance in Children

The American Psychological Foundation  is accepting applications from early-career psychologists conducting research in the area of early intervention and treatment for serious emotional disturbance in children.

Through its John and Polly Sparks Early Career grant program, the foundation will award a single grant of up to $17,000 to an early-career psychologist to produce scientifically based research that could provide a model for broad-based applications across the country. The grant is meant to encourage the recipient to devote his/her career to methods of intervention and treatment for serious emotional disturbance in children.

Although APF does not allow institutional indirect costs or overhead costs, the recipient may use the grant to cover direct administrative costs of his/her proposed project.

To be eligible, applicants must be a psychologist with an Ed.D., Psy.D., or Ph.D. from an accredited university and be no more than seven years postdoctoral.

See the American Psychological Foundation website for complete program guidelines, information about previous recipients, and application instructions.
