Brief Detail About The American Psychological Association (APA)

The American Psychological Association (APA) is the largest scientific and professional organization of psychologists in the United States, with over 146,000 members, including scientists, educators, clinicians, consultants, and students. It has 54 divisions—interest groups for different subspecialties of psychology or topical areas.

The APA was founded in July 1892 at Clark University by a small group of around 30 men; by 1916 there were over 300 members. The first president was G. Stanley Hall. During World War II, the APA merged with other psychological organizations, resulting in a new divisional structure. Nineteen divisions were approved in 1944; the divisions with the most members were the clinical and personnel (now counseling) divisions. From 1960 to 2007, the number of divisions expanded to 54. Today the APA is affiliated with 60 state, territorial, and Canadian provincial associations.

History of APF Queen-Nellie Evans Scholarship:

Jr. Arthur Evans, a Ph.D., established the Queen and Nellie Evans Fund in memory of his grandmother and mother. Evans, a clinical and community psychologist and a healthcare innovator, is the current CEO of the American Psychological Association and its executive vice president.
