American Psychological Foundation Invites Applications for LGBT Family-Oriented Research

The American Psychological Foundation provides financial support for innovative research and programs that enhance the power of psychology to elevate the human condition and advance human potential, both now and for generations to come. Since 1953, APF has supported a broad range of scholarships and grants for students and early-career psychologists, as well as research and programs that use psychology to improve people's lives.   

As part of this mission, the foundation is accepting applications for its Roy Scrivner Memorial Research Grant program, which encourages talented students to orient their careers toward engaging LGBT family issues through basic and/or applied research; advance the understanding of problems faced by LGBT families, including those associated with cultural, racial, socioeconomic, and family structure diversity; advance the understanding of successful coping mechanisms, including sources of support and resilience for family members; and advance the understanding of clinical issues and interventions in the domain of LGBT. Preference will be given to students who have demonstrated their commitment to this area through their dissertation research plans. 

Through the program, APF will award a single grant of up to $11,000.  

Applicants must be an advanced graduate student, in good standing, endorsed by a supervising professor and demonstrate commitment to LGBT family issues.
