The Bruce and Jane Walsh Grant in Memory of John Holland

Preference will be given to early career psychologists (ten years or less postdoctoral), and pilot projects that, if successful, would be strong candidates for support from major federal and foundation funding agencies, and "demonstration projects" that promise to generalize broadly to similar settings in other geographical areas and/or to other settings.

  • Localized direct service.
  • Conference/workshop expenses.
  • Have demonstrated competence and capacity to execute the proposed work.
  • IRB approval must be received from host institution before funding can be awarded if human participants are involved.

  • Please include the following in a single document (Not to exceed five pages, one-inch margins, 11-point Times New Roman/Garamond Font, single-spaced):
  • Goals, relevant background/literature review
  • Methods (must be detailed enough so that the design, assessments and procedures can be evaluated)
