Fahs-Beck Fund for Research and Experimentation Invites Applications for Mental Health Research

The Fahs-Beck Fund for Research and Experimentation was established in 1993 to support research that contributes to a greater understanding of and solutions for problems affecting individuals, families, and communities.

To that end, the fund is inviting applications for its Faculty/Post-Doctoral Research Grant Program. Through the program, grants of up to $20,000 will be awarded in support of faculty or postdoctoral research. Areas of interest identified by the fund include studies to develop, refine, evaluate, or disseminate innovative interventions designed to prevent or ameliorate major social, psychological, behavioral, or public health problems affecting children, adults, couples, families, or communities, or studies that have the potential for adding significantly to knowledge about such problems. 

To be eligible, applicants must be a faculty member at an accredited college or university or be affiliated with a nonprofit human service organization in the United States or Canada. Research for which funding is requested must focus on the U.S. or Canada, or on a comparison between the U.S. or Canada and one or more other country. The principal investigator also must have an earned doctorate in a relevant discipline and relevant experience.
