The American Psychological Association is accepting applications for its Scott and Paul Pearsall Grant program.
One $10,000 grant will be awarded to a graduate student or early career psychologists whose work seeks to increase the public’s understanding of the psychological pain and stigma experienced by adults living with visible physical disabilities, such as cerebral palsy.
The program is designed to encourage talented students to orient their careers to understanding the psychological effect of stigma on people with visible disabilities; develop strategies to improve the public’s understanding of the psychological pain and stigma felt by individuals with visible physical disability in order to reduce harmful misconceptions; and encourage the dissemination of findings to the public.
To be eligible, applicants must be a full-time graduate student in good standing at an accredited university and, if human participants are involved, have received IRB approval before funding can be awarded.
See the APA website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
