The Scholars Grants

The Scholars’ Grants are wholly funded by the Psychoanalytic Society. The grants are awarded to to projects that demonstrate commitment to psychoanalytic research, scholarship, and/or community education. The overall goal of the Scholars’ Grants project is to support our members and candidates, and to demonstrate to the general population the continued relevance and efficacy of psychoanalytic theory and practice in the 21st century.

The Graduate Scholars’ Grants
Annual grants totaling up to $5,000 are awarded to Society members in the form of individual and group grants. The submission deadline is mid-winter, and the awards are conferred at the Society’s Annual Party.The list of grant recipients and their projects is below.

The Candidate Scholar’s Grants
One grant of $1,000 is awarded to a candidate in the New York University Postdoctoral Program. All applicants are required to be current matriculating candidates.

The first candidate grant, conferred in March 2009, was dedicated to Dr. Patrick Lane, a former Society president and Scholars’ Grants Committee member, who was highly instrumental in originating this grant.
