Funding and Eligibility

Funding: It is anticipated that up to three grants will be awarded for a total of $30,000 each year (divided among the funded studies).  The maximum request may be up to $30,000 (direct costs).  The Outcome Studies Grant Committee of the AACNF will determine the number of grants that will be awarded with funding based on the cost and needs outlined by each awardee.  Indirect costs will not be covered; if applicant institutions cannot waive such costs, they must be submitted as part of the direct cost budget.

Grant Monitoring: Awardees are required to submit annual reports of their progress.  The Grant Committee will monitor progress and determine whether funds are being disbursed following the terms of the award.

Eligibility:  Eligible applicants will include doctoral-level psychologists and graduate students matriculating in doctoral or master’s programs.  Board certification or membership in AACN is not required, and international applications are welcomed, providing that the application makes clear how results of the study will be of value to the members of the AACN, most of whom work in the United States.
