About the APF Henry David International Travel Grant:
The Henry David International Travel Grant is made possible through a donation from Henry P. David, PhD, to the American Psychological Foundation (APF). The fund was established to support a doctoral-level reproductive health/population science student or professional from abroad (i.e., U.S. citizens are not eligible) with a demonstrated interest in human sexual/reproductive behavior, sexual/reproductive health, or population issues. 

About the Psychosocial Workshop:
The Psychosocial Workshop is a meeting for researchers in a variety of disciplines working on issues related to population, such as contraception, migration, or abortion. It is held in conjunction with the Population Association of America (PAA)’s annual meeting, a professional meeting of demographers. In 2024, PAA will be held in Columbus, Ohio from April 17-April 20. More information appears here.
