Promoting Psychological Research and Training on Health Disparities
The ProDIGs initiative seeks to increase the capacity of ethnic minority-serving postsecondary institutions and faculty to engage in health disparities research and to encourage student involvement in health disparities research training. ProDIGs offers small grants and a program of professional development activities targeted to early career faculty at these institutions to support activities associated with the preparation of an initial research or program/curriculum development application for federal or foundation funding.
This program is funded by the American Psychological Association (APA) Science Directorate’s “Academic Enhancement Initiative” and administered by the APA Public Interest Directorate’s Office of Ethnic Minority Affairs (OEMA) in collaboration with the APA Minority Fellowship Program. This initiative is based on the assumption that significant improvement in the ethnic minority pipeline in psychology requires that efforts be made to strengthen not only the departments/programs of psychology at ethnic minority serving institutions, but also their relationships with the broader community of psychology.
