Research Micro-Grants

Division 10 operates a micro-grant program to offer funding for small research projects across all areas of aesthetics, creativity, and the arts. Awardees are expected to present their research at the division’s annual meeting at the APA Convention. At this time, the call for proposals appears once a year. The call for proposals and submission details will be announced on our main page and via social media.

Congratulations to our 2022 awardees! A list of past recipients can be found here.
