International Development Grant

Four to ten $1,000 International Development Grants will be distributed annually to persons or organizations interested in developing behavior analysis internationally. In order to promote behavior analysis on a worldwide scale, we hope to increase opportunities for people and organizations that do not have the necessary resources to expand important information and knowledge.


In addition, the top-scoring grant winner from outside the United States may be eligible for a travel grant of up to $1,000. This travel grant is for an individual presenting at the annual convention. The grant will be provided after the convention, and is contingent upon the grantee's presence and presentation there. All grant winners are encouraged to make submissions for and attend the annual convention and to visit laboratories or institutes in the United States in the same trip.


Coordinators and faculty of established international Verified Course Sequences (VCSs) and accredited programs may apply. Please reference the VCS(s) or accredited program(s) in your application. Individuals interested in developing a new VCS or accredited program may also apply under the condition that they have read VCS or accreditation handbooks and application requirements.
