This grant is open to students and faculty to support research related to the prevention of injuries in children and adolescents. Funding is available up to $5,000. The foundation is the philanthropic arm of the American Psychological Assn.

Other Grants

This competition is different from the APF’s Pearson Early Career competition, which is open to mental health clinicians and early career psychologists working to help underserved populations. That competition, which runs on a different track, annually awards one grant of $12,000 to a researcher working on a scientifically-based clinical project in the area of serious mental illness, serious emotional disturbance or children with serious emotional disturbance.
