Violet and Cyril Franks Scholarship

The American Psychological Foundation (APF) is a nonprofit, philanthropic organization that advances the science and practice of psychology as a means of understanding behavior and promoting health, education, and human welfare.

Research indicates that stigma is a significant barrier to treatment and recovery for many of the 50 million Americans living with mental illness. APF is seeking proposals for graduate-level scholarly projects that use a psychological perspective to help understand and reduce stigma associated with mental illness.

$5,000 will be available for graduate student projects.

Goals of the Program:
- Encourage talented students to focus on stigma
- Develop strategies and interventions that reduce the discrimination and stigma people with mental illnesses face
- Reduce misconceptions about mental illness in the general public

Applicants must be graduate students in psychology enrolled full time and in good standing at accredited universities. APF encourages proposals from individuals who represent diversity in race, ethnicity, gender, age, and sexual orientation.

Proposals should describe the proposed project and respond to the following questions in 5 pages (1 inch margins, no smaller than 11 point font):
- What is the project’s goal?
- What prior research in the area has been conducted?
- Whom will this project serve?
- What are the intended outcomes, and how will the project achieve them?
- What is the total cost of the project?
