The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is seeking applications for its AACAP Pilot Research Award for Learning Disabilities.
Supported by the Elaine Schlosser Lewis Fund, the program annually provides an award of $15,000 to a child and adolescent psychiatry resident or junior faculty who has an interest in beginning a career in child and adolescent mental health research. The program is designed to support a young investigator at a critical stage of his/her development and encourage a future career in child and adolescent psychiatry research.
The award recipient is encouraged to work with a child and adolescent psychiatric investigator with expertise in his or her particular area of interest.
To be eligible, candidates must either be a member of AACAP or have a membership application pending (not paid by the award) and agree to submit a poster presentation on his or her research for the organization's 66th annual meeting in Chicago, October 14-19, 2019.
In addition, candidates must be board eligible/certified in child and adolescent psychiatry, or be enrolled in a child psychiatry residency or fellowship program and have a faculty appointment in an accredited medical school, or be in a fully accredited child and adolescent psychiatry clinical research or training program.
For program guidelines, application instructions, and profiles of previous Pilot Research Award recipients, see the AACAP website.
