Since 1953, the American Psychological Foundation has provided financial support for innovative research, scholarships, and projects for students and early-career psychologists working to make a difference in people's lives.
To advance this mission, the foundation's Randy Gerson Memorial Grant program awards a single $6,000 grant each year to a graduate student project in family and/or couple dynamics and/or multi-generational processes that advances theory, assessment, or clinical practice. Preference will be given to projects using or contributing to the development of Bowen family systems. Priority also will be given to projects that serve to advance the work of Dr. Randy Gerson.
To be eligible, the applicant must be a graduate student in psychology enrolled full-time and in good standing at an accredited university who is able to demonstrate competence in the area of the proposed work.
See the APF website for complete program guidelines, a list of previous grant recipients, and application instructions.
