Are you conducting psychological science research and need additional funding for your study? The APAGS Basic Psychological Science Research Grant provides financial support for direct costs associated with psychological science research studies conducted by graduate students.
Graduate students in the following science-oriented fields are encouraged to apply:
- Cognitive Neuroscience,

Students in fields with a practice component are eligible, but they must focus solely on their scientific research in their application materials.
In addition, there is new funding for the grant specifically designated for those conducting diversity-related research. APAGS is offering up to 3 awards for $1,000 to fund diversity-related research project if you apply for a Basic Psychological Science Grant.
