APF Homer Memorial Injury Research Grant Competition Now Open

American Psychological Foundation logoThe American Psychological Foundation opens its 2016 Lizette Peterson Homer Memorial Injury Research Grant competition. The program supports research into psychological and behavioral aspects to prevent injuries in children and adolescents.

Deadline: Oct. 1.

Specifically, the grant supports research related to the prevention of injuries in children and adolescents through accidents, violence, abuse or suicide. One grant of up to $5,000 will be awarded. To be eligible, applicants must be students or faculty at an accredited university and demonstrate research competence and commitment to this area of research.

Other Grants

This competition is different from APF’s Esther Katz Rosen Fund Grants (formerly the Pre-College Psychology Grant). It offers grants up to $50,000 for projects aimed at improving the quality of education in psychological science and its application in secondary schools for high ability students. Programs must focus on gifted and talented students. Schools of education and colleges are eligible (http://tinyurl.com/p9d2rzc). That runs on a different funding track.
