About the American Psychological Foundation (APF)
The American Psychological Foundation (abbreviated APF) is a humanitarian organization in the United States that awards research grants to early-career psychologists. The organization has ties to the American Psychological Association.
Six psychologists founded the American Psychological Foundation in 1953 with an initial budget of $580.
Joseph McVicker Hunt, one of the APF’s founders, later served as its first president.
Dorothy Cantor, who supervised the launch of two major fundraising efforts, the Campaign for a New Era in 2000 and the Campaign to Transform the Future in 2012, is among the foundation’s other former presidents. In 2017, Terence M. Keane replaced Cantor.
One $4,000 scholarship is given each year to a graduate student from an underrepresented group who has a clear financial need and who is dedicated to addressing the challenges that disproportionately affect people of color, especially people of African origin.
Applicants must be minority graduate students enrolled in PhD programs that are accredited.
