Scholarships for ABPP

Call for Applications for ABPP/ABCN Board Certification Scholarships

Application Deadline: January 1, 2024

AACN and APPCN offer a joint scholarship program to support candidates working toward Board Certification in Clinical Neuropsychology through the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP).

The scholarships are available for any of the three stages of the ABPP application process: the written test, practice sample submission, and oral examination. Scholarships will be awarded as reimbursement of expenses for the stage applied for. Individuals may apply for a scholarship for more than one stage, but applications submitted for the January 1, 2024 deadline must be for expenses paid in calendar year 2023.

AACN offers 30 scholarships which can include, but are not limited to, APPCN graduates. APPCN offers 9 scholarships which are designated for graduates of APPCN Member Programs only. All applicants must not have funding available from their employer to support ABPP application costs (i.e., individuals whose employer pays for completion of the ABPP process with funds specifically earmarked for this purpose or from a general fund are not eligible).

AACN and APPCN strongly encourage applications from individuals from historically underrepresented backgrounds, such as underrepresented racial and/or ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, or individuals from socially, culturally, economically, or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds that have presented challenges to a career in clinical neuropsychology.
