Additional Information

he American Psychological Foundation invites applications for its Visionary Grants program, which aims to seed innovation in the field through supporting research, education, and intervention projects and programs that use psychology to solve social problems in the following priority areas: applying psychology to vulnerable, at-risk populations (e.g., serious mental illness, returning military, those who are incarcerated or economically disadvantaged); preventing violence; understanding the connection between behavior and health (e.g., wellness, diabetes, obesity); and understanding and eliminating stigma and prejudice (e.g., race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability, and socioeconomic status).

Grants of up to $20,000 will be awarded with preference given to pilot projects that, if successful, would be strong candidates for support from major federal and foundation funding agencies and “demonstration projects” that promise to generalize broadly to similar settings in other geographical areas and/or to different locations.

Applicants must be graduate students or early-career researchers (no more than 10 years postdoctoral) and be affiliated with a nonprofit charitable, educational, or scientific institution or a governmental entity operating exclusively for charitable and educational purposes.
