The American Psychoanalytic Association founded its fellowship program in 1991. The mission of the fellowship program is to encourage interest and involvement in psychoanalysis among the future leaders, researchers and educators of mental health and academia. Early-career psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers and academics are eligible to apply for the fellowship.
The fellowship offers the opportunity to attend the biannual meetings of APsaA where they can present their clinical work or research. Winners will meet analysts and fellows from across the country and have access to a mentor. Please see Benefits section for details on the fellowship.
All qualified applicants receive a psychoanalytic mentor with whom they meet to discuss their interest in psychoanalytic ideas and how these ideas may apply to their work. They also receive a free subscription to The American Psychoanalyst (TAP), the magazine of the Association, and complimentary registration at the biannual meetings of the Association.
