The American Psychological Foundation is accepting applications for its annual Visionary Grant program.
APF Visionary Grants are designed to fund innovation through support for research, education, and intervention-driven 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.
In 2018, APF will award one-year grants of $20,000.
To be eligible, applicants must demonstrate the competence and capacity to execute the proposed work and be affiliated with a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
For complete program guidelines and application instructions, as well as information about grant recipients from previous years, see the APF website.
