- Meetings and Conferences: Grants in this category support efforts that facilitate communication among teachers of psychological science who share common challenges and who would benefit from sharing ideas and resources
- Technology and Websites: Grants in this category support projects leveraging technological resources to enhance the teaching and learning of psychological science, and to increase the reach and efficient dissemination of related resources
- Antiracist Curricula: Grants in this category support projects that aim to eliminate racial bias in psychological science curricula and incorporate principles of racial justice into psychological science curricula.
