American Psychological Foundation Invites Applications for Walfish Grants Program

The American Psychological Foundation is accepting applications for its Steven O. Walfish Grants program.

The program is supported by the Division 42 Next Generation Fund, which promotes and supports student and early-career practitioner psychologists eager to expand the knowledge base in the practice of psychology. Through the program, grants of $2,000 will be awarded to graduate students (within two years or less of completing the doctoral degree) and/or early career psychologists (within ten years of earning the doctoral degree).

Applicants are required to submit a previously unpublished manuscript that addresses evolving standards, practices, or methods in psychological practice. Topics may include population‐based practice issues, procedure or technique‐based practice issues, diagnosis‐based practice issues, or service delivery models that describe a practice innovation.

Grant recipients are encouraged to use the grant to attend the APA convention to present their work. The paper of the grant recipients may qualify for publication in the Div. 42 journal, Practice Innovations.

In addition to the cash prize, recipients will receive a one‐year free membership to Div. 42 of the American Psychological Association.

See the American Psychological Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
