Request a Grant Writer

Grant of $10,000 to a USA, Canada, or International early-career psychologist for research and demonstration projects that foster understanding of the relationship between self-identity and scholastic achievement, primarily for children in kindergarten through eighth grade. Applications are invited for projects demonstrating innovation and a strong potential for impact.

This grant will alternate every other year between an early career psychologist and a graduate student. The 2018 grant will support an early career psychologist (no more than ten years post-doctoral).

The Kenneth B. and Mamie P. Clark Fund was established in 2003 to honor the Clarks and to perpetuate their work as pioneers in understanding the psychological underpinnings of race relations and in addressing social issues such as segregation and injustice.

The Clarks were the first and second African-Americans to receive PhDs from Columbia University. Their famous doll experiments, in which they asked children to express their likes and dislikes about brown-and white-skinned dolls, led the Clarks to conclude that the segregation in schools and society was psychologically damaging to the children. These studies are believed to be the first social science evidence considered as hard fact by the U.S. Supreme court, in Brown v. The Board of Education of Topeka.

Proposals will be evaluated on: 
-Conformance with stated program goals and qualifications.
-Quality and potential impact of proposed work.
-Originality, innovation and contribution to the field with proposed project.
-Applicant’s demonstrated competence and capability to execute the proposed work. 
-Allocation of resources and criticality of funding for execution of work (particularly if part of a larger funded effort).
