APF/Society for General Psychology Mary Whiton Calkins Grant
The APF/Society for General Psychology Mary Whiton Calkins grant encourages research that fits into the broad category of general psychology with a particular interest in research that combines multiple subfields within the discipline or addresses overarching themes. The strongest proposals will align with one or more of Div. 1's (Society for General Psychology) goals and will support faculty members who seek to promote coherence among psychology’s subfields.
The grant will support faculty who teach at primarily undergraduate serving institutions and who identify undergraduate education as their primary focus.
- Be a member of Div. 1 (Society for General Psychology) who teaches psychology at a primarily undergraduate serving institution.
- Obtain IRB approval from host institution before funding can be awarded if human participants are involved (IRB approval is not required at the time of submission).
Preference will be given to:

- Projects that are likely to be presented and/or published in a peer‐reviewed outlet or that could be made available to division members through web resources.
- Projects that involve undergraduates.
