Grant Description
Grants to USA, Canada, and International early-career psychologists and graduate students affiliated with eligible institutions for research studies related to psychological testing. Funding is intended to support projects that explore the professional and ethical use of tests, including issues such as confidentiality, privacy, reliability, bias, and test construction.

Lorraine D. Eyde Fund Grants support empirical research on the ethical and professional use of psychological tests in a broad range of subject areas. Research proposals can focus on elements of testing such as privacy and confidentiality; quality of tests (reliability and validity); tests in employment selection; test construction; qualifications of psychologists utilizing tests; race, gender and transgender issues in testing; and inherent bias in tests and testing procedures that disproportionately impact underserved or marginalized populations. 

Researchers from a broad range of content areas are encouraged to apply, including neuropsychology, personality, vocational psychology, educational testing and entrance examinations, cognitive ability testing, and other fields where testing plays a prominent role. Grant proposals are not limited to these examples and may include a substantial range of issues related to test use and ethics.

Additional Eligibility Criteria
Applicants must be graduate students or early career psychologists (no more than 10 years postdoctoral).

To receive APF funds, recipients must be affiliated with a nonprofit charitable, educational or scientific institution, or governmental entity operating exclusively for charitable and educational purposes.

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 Trustees must wait one year after their term of service before they can be considered for a grant or an award.

Pre-Application Information
Deadline: March 15, 2023 . Applications are due at 11:59 p.m. Hawaii Standard Time (HST) on the due date.

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.

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.
