They discussed a funding level that would allow accredited psychology programs like AUNE’s PsyD program to apply for GPE grant funding to train doctoral students to work with high-need, high-risk, and underserved groups such as veterans and their families, children and adolescents, rural populations, the elderly, and those with chronic medical conditions.
