APF Esther Katz Rosen Fund Grants

American Psychological Foundation (APF) Esther Katz Rosen Fund Grants offer up to $50,000 for work related to the psychological understanding of gifted children and youth. 

Evaluation Criteria

●     Conformance with stated program goals and qualifications.

●     Quality and impact of proposed work.

●     Innovation and contribution to the field.

●     Applicant’s demonstrated competence and capability to execute the proposed work

Eligibility Criteria

●     Be affiliated with a school or education institution.

●     Hold a doctoral degree from, or be a graduate student at, an accredited university for research proposals.

Graduate students and early career psychologists (10 years or less postdoctoral) are encouraged to apply. APF also supports pilot projects that, if successful, would be strong candidates for support from major federal and foundation funding agencies, and “demonstration projects” that promise to generalize broadly to other geographical areas and/or to other settings. Teaching time releases are not supported from the Rosen Fund.

Proposal Requirements

●     Current CV

●     Two letters of support

●     A detailed proposal that makes a case for the need to be addressed; describes the proposed project, methodology, and the applicant’s qualifications; and includes a detailed budget and justification.

●     Format: not to exceed 7 pages (1-inch margins, no smaller than 11 point font); one-paragraph abstract.

●     If questionnaires are referenced in proposals, they must be included with the application.

●     If applicable, proposals should describe “participant characteristics” in full detail.
