The Klingenstein Third Generation Foundation is seeking applications for its grants which it distributes to medical institutions for postdoctoral fellowships in child-adolescent ADHD and child-adolescent depression.
Deadline: Nov. 15.
In 2015, the foundation launched an Access to Care Fellowship, which is designed to directly improve access, quality, and outcomes in mental healthcare for children and their families. It also funds medical student programs in child and adolescent psychiatry at select medical institutions.
The KTGG awards up to five fellowship grants to medical institutions that have nominated research projects led by outstanding postdoctoral candidates. The foundation considers proposals for research projects in the fields of child and adolescent ADHD, child and adolescent depression, and access to care. The grant awards are for $30,000 per year for two years.
Preference is given to two-year research projects with the potential to lead to larger projects worthy of federal funding and other national research awards. Institutions should nominate candidates who demonstrate strong independent research ability/potential and who are planning a career in research related to child and adolescent psychiatry or developmental psychopathology. The foundation gives priority to research designed to produce a direct and tangible benefit to children and their families.
Each medical institutional must select only one research project and investigator for nomination per fellowship. In addition to the department chair’s endorsement, the foundation also requires a primary mentor on site to sponsor the project and investigator.
