Healthcare Scholarship: American Psychological Foundation Scholarships

Graduate students must rely heavily on scholarships and grants to fund their educations. Since you’re majoring in psychology, you are responsible for carrying out research projects, which you have to fund. The American Psychological Foundation administers several graduate student scholarships intended to help you fund your required research. Each scholarship is classified as a hybrid scholarship, intended to help you with research costs.

Scholarship Overview

The APF scholarship is actually 16 scholarships in amounts varying from $1,000 up to $5,000. Eleven of the scholarship awards are for $1,000; one is for $2,000 and one for $3,000. The remaining three are for $5,000 each. Each scholarship is intended to be used on research rather than to pay for books, tuition, journals or textbooks.

Scholarship Requirements

Competing graduate students are required to submit a research proposal, which is rated on a description of the planned research. This description should take the form of a literature review. Additional research proposal criteria include the clarity of the proposed research question, its applied and theoretical importance, appropriateness of the chosen research design to the research question and your plans for use of the grant funds.

The scholarship committee also makes its choices based on second-tier criteria, including conference presentations, articles previously published, educational institution awards, your background, letter of recommendation from your major advisor, your course grades and the breadth of courses taken.

For the Charles D. and Carol Spielberger scholarship, the selection committee also looks at your credentials, which may include GPA, research productivity and GRE testing results. Your competitiveness in comparison to other scholarship applicants is also considered.

Deadline of Scholarship

All scholarship applications are due by June 30th.

Scholarship Amount

•Nine unnamed and named scholarships award $1,000 each. The two named scholarships include the William C. Howell scholarship and the Peter and Malina James and Dr. Louis P. James Legacy scholarship.
