Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $1,000 to USA high school psychology teachers for programs that support professional development, networking opportunities, and educational outreach. Eligible uses of funding include statewide and regional networking opportunities, such as workshops and conferences, and 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.

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).

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.

Criteria for regional or state-wide networks of high school psychology teachers:

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.

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 withholding 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.

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 opportunities:

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 events for students are encouraged.

Grant funding can be used to support the following:

- Food at a planned event
- Materials for a 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.
