Three awards of $20,000 each will be awarded to nonprofit organizations, government agencies or universities responding to a community need with a program or project which focuses primarily on family/informal caregivers of adults with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. Only agencies operating within the continental United States are eligible to apply. One award will be granted in each of these categories:

Some examples are programs or projects using art, music, theatre, journaling, multimedia (e.g. film, documentary, radio) or other types of creative expression.

Policy and Advocacy: This award will go to programs or projects that advocate for systems change for the benefit of family/informal caregivers or care recipients with Alzheimer's disease or related dementias.

Call for Applications for 2014: Center of Excellence for Comparative Effectiveness Research
Application deadline: September 15, 2013
Program start date January 1, 2014
It is an exciting time to work in the health care field, as Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER) has become a
national priority. Information, options, and outcomes are the facets of CER—research that has gained widespread
attention while medical innovation continues to generate more tests, treatments, and alternative therapies for
patients worldwide. Developing a skilled CER workforce is essential for effectively comparing the benefits and risks
of existing treatments and translating those findings into optimal care. Universities and medical schools have the
potential to shape this emerging field as they train the next generation of CER specialists. The PhRMA Foundation
is showing its support of CER education by awarding annual grants to institutions that will develop comprehensive,
degree-granting programs in CER. Each grant will be for $250,000 and distributed over a three-year period.
The purpose of this program is to provide funding to a U.S. educational institution in order for it to develop or
expand a degree-granting program in comparative effectiveness research (CER).
Organizations/institutions eligible to apply include those academic degree granting programs with an existing NIH
or AHRQ-funded CER research or training program and the capacity to develop a degree-granting program in CER
using existing tenure track professors.
Applications are available online at www.phrmafoundation.org and the application submission deadline is September 15, 2013. This award will begin on January 1, 2014.

Ralph E. Roughton Paper Award
The Ralph Roughton Paper Award was established in 1998 to honor the founding Chairperson of APsaA’s Committee on Gay and Lesbian Issues. In its first decade, it gave formal recognition to outstanding published papers that deepened our psychoanalytic understanding of gay men and lesbians. In 2007, the mission of the Award was changed. In the years that it is awarded, the Ralph Roughton Paper Award is now given to an unpublished manuscript that, in the opinion of the judges, makes an original and outstanding contribution to the psychoanalytic understanding and/or treatment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgendered individuals.
The Award carries a cash prize of $500 and the author of the winning paper will be invited to present it at the National Meeting of the American Psychoanalytic Association in New York every January. The winner may submit his/her paper for review by the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association and, if accepted, it will be published as the winner of the Ralph Roughton Paper Award.
Committee on Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender Issues
Papers must be unpublished (but may have been presented at professional meetings) and must conform to the Preparation of Submission Guidelines outlined by the Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association with the exception that the length should not exceed 30 double-spaced typed pages. Paper submissions are welcome from anyone regardless of institutional affiliation.
