Grants and Honors

Division 44 acknowledges the valuable contributions made by its members and others through a program of awards offered annually. We also give grant funding to students through three separate competitions. Finally, we nominate our members to become Fellows of APA for their unusual and outstanding contributions to LGBT psychology. You can read about how to nominate someone for these honors, and who has recently received them, here. We also provide links to the websites of our Fellows so you can learn more about their work.



To nominate someone for an award please send a letter to the President-Elect. The deadline for nominations is June 1.
