The American Psychological Foundation is accepting applications for its 2016 Visionary Grant program.  APF Visionary Grants are designed to fund innovation by supporting research, education, and intervention projects and programs that use psychology to solve social problems. Funded projects must fall within the foundation’s four priority areas: understanding and fostering the connection between behavior and physical health to ensure well-being; reducing stigma and prejudice to promote unity and harmony; understanding and preventing violence to create a safer, more humane world; and supporting programs that address the long-term psychological needs of individuals and communities in the aftermath of disaster.  In 2016, APF will award one-year grants of $20,000 to eligible projects.  For additional information, go to:  http://www.apa.org/apf/funding/visionary.aspx  For a copy of the Request for Proposals, go to:  http://www.apa.org/apf/funding/visionary.pdf
