This year the ABPP Foundation is celebrating 10 years of supporting psychologists’ efforts to earn board certification through scholarship programs that reimburse ABPP candidates for some or all their board certification expenses. More specifically, the Foundation has awarded nearly two hundred scholarships. During the past three years alone, the Foundation identified 100 recipients. In 2022, the Foundation awarded twenty-nine (29) scholarships; in 2021, we awarded thirty-seven (37) scholarships while in 2020 the Foundation awarded thirty-four (34) scholarships. These accomplishments were all due to donations and support by organizations like the ABPP, APPIC, and National Register, and individual donors including the Kaslow family, Gupton Memorial fund, and Walter Katkovsky.
Currently the Foundation sponsors the following scholarships:

  • Training Directors’ Scholarship – for any current director or co-director of a doctoral training program in clinical, counseling, or school psychology.
  • The Early Career Psychologists Scholarship – for psychologists who earned their doctoral degree less than 10 years ago.
  • The Kaslow Family Fund – for individuals seeking board certification in couples and family psychology.
  • The Walter Katkovsky Scholarship – for health service psychologists.
  • The Eileen Gupton Memorial Scholarship – for psychologists pursuing board specialization in Police and Public Safety Psychology.

As you may know, the work of the Foundation is financially very much dependent on donations from corporate donors and our ABPP specialists.  Would you please show your support for the ABPP Foundation and donate at:
