Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $1,000 to USA eligible secondary school teachers for career development and networking events and activities. Programs that are eligible for funding include conferences, workshops, and innovative programs that join together students and teachers from several schools. Eligible applicants are teachers of psychology at the high school level. Funding is intended to develop teacher networks for high school psychology.

The following types of opportunities will be considered for funding:

  • The development of regional or statewide networks of high school psychology teachers. Specifically, these grants are meant to support the development or continuation of regional or statewide teaching workshops or conferences for high school psychology teachers. A guide on Building, Guiding and Sustaining Regional Networks for Psychology Teachers is available in Supporting Documents below.
  • Programs that bring together high school psychology teachers and students from at least three schools for a psychology fair, psychology bowl or another innovative opportunity.
  • Support for high school psychology teachers to present on TOPSS at a local, regional or national conference.

Workshops and Networking

APF is particularly interested in proposals that could lead to the formation of a new network or program. However, APF will consider all funding requests to support regional or statewide networks for teachers (e.g., teaching workshops or conferences) or educational outreach opportunities for teachers and students (e.g., psychology fairs, psychology bowls).

Grant funding can be used to support the following:

  • Mailings to teachers.
  • Food at workshop or conference.
  • Materials for workshop or conference.
  • Copying costs.
  • Honorarium for speaker(s) at workshop or conference.
  • Other costs associated with outreach to regional teachers or with holding a workshop or conference.
  • Other related costs.

Workshops may be held at a high school, but grantees may also want to consider contacting local colleges, universities or community colleges for potential workshop sites. The Education Directorate can assist grantees in announcing workshop opportunities to teachers within a state or region. Further information will be shared with grantees following funding approval.

Programs That Bring Together Psychology Teachers and Students

Criteria for programs that bring together high school psychology teachers and students from several local or regional schools for a psychology fair, psychology bowl or other innovative opportunity:

  • These types of grants are intended to bring together teachers and students from at least three schools for an innovative opportunity that enhances the psychology learning experience for students. Proposals seeking funding to support a psychology bowl, psychology fair or other collaborative event for students are encouraged.

For examples of the types of events these grants seek to support, please see URL for Full Text below.

Grant funding can be used to support the following:

  • Food at planned event.
  • Materials for planned event, including t-shirts.
  • Copying costs.
  • Honorarium for speaker(s).
  • Other related costs.

The Education Directorate can assist grantees in announcing programs as needed. Further information will be shared with grantees following funding approval.

Estimated Total Program Funding:

$6,000

Estimated Size of Grant:

APF will award $6,000 in grants in 2020. The average value of grants awarded to date has been $500-$1,000 per grant.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

High school psychology teachers are eligible to apply.

These types of grants are not intended to be used to support classroom materials or opportunities that reach ten or fewer teachers. Rather, these grants must support professional development for teachers by providing an opportunity for teachers within a general region or state to come together to meet, network and learn from one another.

Previous APF High School Psychology Teacher Network awardees may apply for up to three years of funding to continue support of a local network.

Criteria for support for high school psychology teachers to present on TOPSS at a local, regional or national conference:
These travel grants will cover registration fees, travel and/or hotel costs associated with presenting on APA TOPSS (e.g., benefits of TOPSS membership, TOPSS resources) and/or APA’s National Standards for High School Psychology Curricula at a local, regional or national conference focused on psychology and/or education. The conference must be one attended by high school psychology teachers or administrators who work with high school psychology teachers. The conference must take place between June 1, 2020, and May 30, 2021. The grant will be awarded only after a conference proposal has been accepted for presentation.
