Theodore Meyer Scholarship
Theodore Michael Meyer (August 9, 1982 - January 17, 2013) was a music lover and a student of guitar. He started playing guitar when he was a young teenager in Raleigh, NC and spent much of his free time 'jamming' with friends and playing gigs at local venues. In 2007, Theo received his Bachelor's Degree in Music Composition from the College of Charleston in South Carolina. Due to a biking accident, Theo suffered from chronic pain throughout most of his 20s. Theo benefited from Music Therapy as part of his treatment and considered going back to school to study Music Therapy to help others. Theo's family hopes that this scholarship will go to a student interested in helping individuals with mental health and/or addiction issues find a path to wellness and inspiration through the joy of music.

The maximum amount of this award is $5,000 for direct costs. By policy, the MTF does not cover indirect costs. The maximum award period is two years.
The grant is open to any ACMT member in good standing. The PI or Senior Investigator must be an active ACMT member. Co-Investigators are not required to be ACMT members and collaboration with professionals from other disciplines is encouraged.

Call for Applications: Doris Duke Fellowships for the Promotion of Child Well-Being
The application period runs from August 15th to December 15th each year.
Thanks to the generous support of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago is pleased to offer the Doris Duke Fellowships for the Promotion of Child Well-Being. These fellowships are designed to identify and develop a new generation of leaders interested in and capable of creating practice and policy initiatives that will enhance child development and improve the nation's ability to prevent all forms of child maltreatment.
The fellows receive an annual stipend of $25,000 for up to two years to support the completion of their dissertation and related research at their academic institution. Up to 15 fellowships are awarded annually. Fellows are guided by an academic mentor whom they select; fellows also identify a policy or practice mentor to assist them in better understanding how to frame their research questions with an eye toward maximizing policy and practice relevance.
Because the promotion of child well-being and the prevention of child maltreatment require knowledge and collaboration from diverse fields, the program is multidisciplinary in scope and approach. Fellows are selected from a range of academic disciplines, including—-but not limited to—-social work, child development, public health, medicine, public policy, education, economics, psychology, and epidemiology. In order to maximize the opportunities for interdisciplinary learning, Chapin Hall is building a sustainable peer learning network among the fellows and mentors through a series of in-person meetings, webinars, conference calls, and social networking opportunities.
