APF Esther Katz Rosen Fund Grants for Gifted Children and Youth Research

The Esther Katz Rosen Fund derives from a bequest to support “... activities related to the advancement and application of knowledge about gifted children.”

Program Goals

The Esther Katz Rosen Fund

  • Enables and enhances development of identified gifted and talented children and adolescents
  • Encourages promising psychologists to continue innovative research and programs in this area

Support will be provided for activities on the advancement and application of knowledge related to identified gifted and talented children and adolescents such as:

  • Research
  • Pilot projects
  • Research-based programs


Grants from $1,000 to $50,000 are available

For grants and scholarships that are $10,000 or more, APF will make the award to your institution. APF does not allow institutional indirect costs or overhead costs. Applicants may use grant monies for direct administrative costs of their proposed project.

Eligibility Requirements

Applicants must:

  • Hold a doctoral degree from or be a graduate student at an accredited university for research proposals*
  • Be affiliated with a school or education institution

International applicants who meet the other eligibility requirements may apply for APF funding.

*Graduate students and early career psychologists (ten years or less postdoctoral) are encouraged to apply. APF also supports 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 other geographical areas and/or to other settings.

Evaluation Criteria

Proposals will be evaluated on:

  • Conformance with stated program goals and qualifications
  • Quality and impact of proposed work
  • Innovation and contribution to the field
  • Applicant’s demonstrated competence and capability to execute the proposed work
