APA Grants for Internship Programs – Request for Proposals

The American Psychological Association (APA) has allocated up to $3 million over a period of three years for seed funding under a grant application process to increase the number of APA-accredited internship programs and positions.  The dual purposes are to expand the number of accredited internship positions and to promote quality training for professional practice.  This grant program is one component of multifaceted efforts across the profession and APA to address the significant imbalance in supply and demand for accredited internships.  These grants will be limited to applicant internship programs operated by nonprofit entities.

For the second round of funding in 2014, applications must be received by November 7, 2014for award in December 2014.  The APA Board of Educational Affairs (BEA) Internship Grants Review Group will be reviewing applications in late November 2014 and applicants will be contacted once the review process has concluded.

Programs that previously applied for the grant and were not funded are encouraged to reapply.

Priority will be given to programs seeking accreditation that expand the number of internship positions, serve historically underserved populations, and/or prepare psychologists to work in integrated primary care and community health care settings.

To apply please complete the application found at:
