APF National Register Internship Partnership Fund

Three grants of up to $15,000 to internship programs accredited by the APA or CPA to increase the number of internship slots. 

Deadline:

Sponsor: APF

Description

The APF/National Register Internship Partnership Fund provides grants to internship programs accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) or the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) to increase the number of internship slots. Funding is for a single year, although programs are eligible to reapply for a second year. Programs will be expected to match the APF funding and to articulate a plan to perpetuate the slot in subsequent years.

Funding Specifics
  • Three grants of up to $15,000 each are available.
  • Funding must be used to support new internship slots. Programs may apply for only one grant per year.
  • Programs may use grant monies for direct administrative costs, e.g., stipend, benefits, etc., of the internship slot. APF does not allow institutional or overhead costs to institutions.
  • Preference will be given for service to traditionally under-served populations and for training in integrated care.
Evaluation Criteria

Applications will be evaluated on:

  • Necessity of funding. 
  • Plan for securing matching funds. 
  • Plan for continuing the slot in future years. 
  • Provision of service to traditionally underserved populations and training in integrated care.
Eligibility

Programs must:

  • Be operated by a nonprofit entity.
  • Be eligible to receive non-appropriated funding

Preference will be given for service to traditionally under-served populations and for training in integrated care.
