Group Foundation for Advancing Mental Health Research Grant

Funder: The Group Foundation

Due Date: November 1, 2017

Budget: $15,000

Funds are available from the Group Foundation for Advancing Mental Health to support research that demonstrates the effectiveness of group psychotherapy.  The Group Psychotherapy Foundation is seeking research-focused, rather than program-focused, applications.

Grants are typically awarded at $2,500-$15,000 depending on the importance of the research to the field, the experience of the investigative team and the number of research applications received. Grant funding can be used to support the basic costs of research, e.g., supplies, research equipment, photocopying, postage, computer services, statistical consultation and research assistant salaries; investigator salaries and travel expenses are not funded. (Equipment purchased for use with a research project is to be donated to an institution at the completion of the project.) Grant monies are awarded with an expected completion of the project in one year as follows: fifty percent upon grant approval, forty percent upon submission of a six month progress report and the final ten percent upon receipt of a post project report.

The deadline for receipt of research grant application materials is November 1.  Email submission is preferred; application materials should be sent to the Group Foundation at  If mailed, one copy should be sent to the Group Foundation for Advancing Mental Health at 25 East 21st Street, 6th Floor, New York, NY 10010.  The application form may be reproduced in word with electronic signature, scanned and emailed, faxed or mailed.
