Pre-college Psychology Grants
APF is pleased to announce that the
following three programs each received
$20,000 Pre-college Psychology Grants.
The grant program, established in 2007,
supports the science and application of
psychological science among talented
high school students.
Academic Achievement Services
(AAS) Social Sciences Academy will use
the funding to bridge the educational
resource gap among South Los Angeles
communities of color by empowering
local high school students to learn, apply
and succeed in achieving their academic
and professional goals within the social
sciences field. AAS will provide 40 South
Los Angeles 10th-, 11th- and 12th-
grade students with no-cost academic
coaching, research opportunities, college
and career planning, and mentorships.
Carleton College plans to use the
grant to expand its residential academic
three-week summer program, Summer
Psychology Connections. The program
will enable talented high-school
students, including students from
under-represented and under-resourced
backgrounds, to engage in college-level
study of psychology and to consider
psychology as a college major. The

Stanford University’s Office of
Science Outreach will use the grant
to cover stipend costs for seven bright,
disadvantaged students in the Bay
Area interested in pursuing careers as
psychologists to participate in the Raising
Interest in Science and Engineering
Internship Program for High School
Students. The seven-week summer
internship program provides daily hands-on, lab-based experiences in Stanford
labs where students work on cutting-edge
research projects side by side with Stanford
scientists, engineers and psychologists.
The Pre-college Psychology Grants

from Esther Katz Rosen, who wanted
