Request a Grant Writer

Scholarships of $5,000 to USA, Canada, and International graduate students and psychologists to participate in psychopharmacology training programs. Priority will be given to applicants committed to treating the underserved. The purpose of funding is to improve the quality of mental health care for the most at-risk members of the community.

The Beth N. Rom-Rymer Scholarships provide support to both graduate students and practicing, licensed psychologists to complete their training in psychopharmacology programs, which adhere to the APA model curriculum of didactic training in clinical psychopharmacology.

The purpose of the scholarships is to encourage talented psychologists, with recognized leadership skills, and with demonstrated passion for growing the field, to become prescribing psychologists, engaged in providing the highest caliber, comprehensive, integrated care to the most at-risk members of the community.

Approximately half of the scholarships are intended for predoctoral graduate students, and approximately half for practicing, licensed psychologists at all career levels.

Applicants may use grant monies for direct administrative costs of their proposed project. Most APF programs allow for a wide range of direct costs. Examples include (but are not limited to): participant payments, supplies, technology expenses (software, hardware, imaging, etc.), travel to conduct research, travel to disseminate findings, stipend/salary support, course buy out and supplemental training.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Applicants must be graduate students or practicing, licensed psychologists with evidence of having enrolled in a training program in clinical psychopharmacology, which adheres to the APA model curriculum of didactic training in clinical psychopharmacology.

APF welcomes applicants with diverse backgrounds with respect to age, race, color, religion, creed, nationality, disability, sexual orientation, gender and geography.

International applicants from countries that have diplomatic relations with the United States and who meet the other eligibility requirements may apply for APF funding.

APF does not allow institutional indirect costs or overhead costs.

Pre-Application Information:

Deadline: February 1, 2021. Applications are due at 11:59 p.m.

Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval is required for any research project involving human participants.

APF tries to announce grant recipients approximately two to three months after a grant deadline, though the exact time may take shorter or longer depending on the number of applications received.

The institution must affirm in writing that it will waive all administrative fees and charges for indirect costs. This assurance must be received before the funds can be released via the signature of an institutional official on the grant terms and conditions.

You can apply to as many APF programs as you like. Researchers can win multiple awards for different projects. Each individual project, however, can only win once. This means that if you win funding for your project, that specific project will be removed from consideration for future funding opportunities from APF.
