The American Psychological Foundation Visionary Grants aim to support the most innovative work in psychology — work that seeks to provide solutions to behavior and problems that impact the very fabric of our society. In this vein, the foundation invites proposals in the following key areas:

  • The connection between mental and physical health.

  • Violence prevention and intervention.

  • Psychological needs of individuals and communities in the long-term aftermath of disaster.

  • Awareness of stigma and prejudice to end discrimination.

APF’s Visionary Grants support original psychological research, education and intervention projects. APF will give preference to pilot research that would be well-positioned for support from major federal and foundation funding agencies, and demonstration projects that could be replicated. APF has $80,000 available for Visionary Grants and will confer awards of approximately $20,000 each.
