American Psychological Foundation Graduate Student Funding
The American Psychological Foundation offers a variety of scholarship, fellowship, and grant opportunities aimed at developing psychological talent and ensuring that the most capable students have the resources they need to thrive in the field.


Army Research Institute Consortium Research Fellows Program
Three research fellowships for doctoral students in Experimental, Cognitive, Industrial/Organizational, or Educational Psychology are available at the Fort Benning Research Unit of the U.S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences (ARI). Located near Columbus, Georgia, Fort Benning is the home of the U.S. Army Maneuver Center of Excellence (Armor and Infantry Schools).

These Fellows will be involved in research design, data collection, and analysis of applied research on training effectiveness, decision-making, leader development, and technology-based training conducted in the institution, simulation facilities, and the field. ARI’s immediate research focus is on tailored training methods, instructor skill development, and effective use of emerging simulations and simulators. Other research examines the impact of different learning strategies and training technologies on learning and transfer.

The Fellows will participate in collecting and analyzing quantitative and qualitative data and must be proficient with statistical software packages. The Fellows will write portions of papers for conferences, reports, and/or journal articles.

Interested candidates can learn more about the CRFP at our website: www.consortium-research-fellows.org. Applications should be submitted via the website. There is no specific deadline, but fellowships will be filled as soon as well-qualified candidates are identified.
