Promoting Psychology in Secondary Schools

The American Psychological Foundation provides financial support for innovative research and programs that enhance the power of psychology to elevate the human condition and advance human potential. APF's Pre-College Psychology Grant program provides financial support for efforts aimed at improving the quality of education in psychological science and its application in secondary schools for talented students.

The program awards grants of up to $20,000 to projects that improve the quality of high school education in psychology and/or encourage talented high school students to pursue careers in psychology. Priority is given to projects that reinforce the discipline of psychology as a science in secondary school curricula; expand the profile of psychology as a science among talented high school students; convey to high school students that psychological science is a tool to improve society; and teach students about career options that apply psychology outside of an academic setting. Proposals must focus on supporting the education of talented high school students.

Amount: $20,000

Date due: May 1, 2013
