American Psychological Foundation Accepting Proposals for Research-Based Programs on Violence Prevention

The American Psychological Foundation (www.apa.org/apf) is a nonprofit philanthropic organization that provides scholarships, grants, and awards to advance the science and practice of psychology and benefit human welfare. The foundation will award up to $20,000 for research-based programs in violence prevention and intervention. The program’s goals are as follows: to encourage the transfer of psychological science with regard to violence, its prevention, and intervention strategies to programmatic applications within the community; to support the implementation of innovative community programs aimed at preventing violence within any number of social settings (e.g., young adult populations, elder abuse, domestic abuse, hate crimes, sexual assault, and others); to provide seed money to establish promising interventions proposed by community-based organizations or to provide funding for established community programs that have been deemed successful. To be eligible for this program, primary investigators/applicants must be psychologists holding a doctoral degree (Ph.D., Psy.D., M.D., J.D.) engaged in research-based program implementation related to violence prevention. Special consideration will be given to programs with a strong foundation in violence prevention and intervention research and those that have, or show promise for, broad-based community support. Visit the foundation’s Web site for complete program information and application procedures. Deadline: June 1, 2006.
