Who Can Apply: WhThe purpose of these grants is to support innovative programs that support networking, professional development and educational outreach opportunities for high school psychology teachers and students. The following types of opportunities will be considered for funding:
- The development of regional or statewide networks of high school psychology teachers. Specifically, these grants are meant to support the development or continuation of regional or statewide teaching workshops or conferences for high school psychology teachers.
- Programs that bring together high school psychology teachers and students from at least three schools for a psychology fair, psychology bowl or another innovative opportunity.
APF is particularly interested in proposals that could lead to the formation of a new network or program. However, APF will consider all funding requests to support regional or statewide networks for teachers (e.g., teaching workshops or conferences) or educational outreach opportunities for teachers and students (e.g., psychology fairs, psychology bowls).
Previous APF High School Psychology Teacher Network awardees may apply for up to three years of funding to continue support of a local network.
Submission: Proposals should include:
- A description of the proposed network or program and a rationale for how the network or program will enhance the teaching of high school psychology. Proposals for teacher networks must include a description of the planned workshop or conference.
- A plan for outreach:
- Those applying to support a teacher network should include a description of how the applicant intends to contact teachers within his or her region or state.
- Those applying for a program for teachers and students should detail how many other schools and/or students will participate in the planned event, and how the applicant intends to contact the other participating schools.
- A summary of the assessment plan (e.g., evaluation form) to evaluate the success of the workshop or network, with a copy of the assessment if available.
- A budget outlining the expected costs associated with the network, workshop, conference and/or program.
- Resume or vitae of the applicant.
