Call for Nominations: Klingenstein Third Generation Foundation Fellowship Programs
The Fellowship in Child and Adolescent ADHD & The Fellowship in Child and Adolescent Depression
Applications are due on January 10, 2014 -- all applications must be submitted online.
The Klingenstein Third Generation Foundation awards research grants to post-doctoral investigators at esteemed American medical institutions. At its establishment in 1998, the Foundation funded research fellowships in Child and Adolescent depression. In 2007, the Foundation expanded the Program to include funding for research in Child and Adolescent ADHD.
Each year, the Klingenstein Third Generation Foundation makes up to four grants to medical institutions that have nominated research projects led by outstanding post-doctoral candidates. The Foundation considers proposals for research projects in the field of child and adolescent ADHD and child and adolescent depression. The grant awards are for $30,000 per year for two years, and the primary investigator is awarded the title of KTGF Fellow in ADHD or KTGF Fellow in Depression.
The Foundation particularly wishes to support two-year research projects that could lead to larger projects worthy of federal funding and other national research awards. Institutions should, therefore, nominate candidates who have strong evidence of independent research ability and who are planning a career in research related to child and adolescent psychiatry.
The Foundation expects institutions to nominate post-doctorial investigators holding a Ph.D. and/or M.D. who have also completed all clinical training. As a general rule, nominated candidates should be at the junior faculty level, although the Foundation will consider applications nominating candidates in research training programs. Investigators who have already received R01 awards from NIMH are not eligible for nomination. Investigators who have K awards or have applied for K awards are eligible for nomination, as are investigators who have not applied for Ks and hope to use a KTGF fellowship as a stepping stone to a K award or other funding. While fellows may be selected prior to receipt of IRB approval, no fellowship award is finalized until such approval is received.
The Foundation accepts nominations only from the Chair of Departments of Psychiatry. 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 mentor to sponsor the project and investigator. The Department Chair may serve as a mentor.
The Foundation runs a two-stage selection process. In its first round—the nomination entry—the Foundation requires institutions to nominate its selected project and primary investigator. If the institution satisfies the nomination requirements, the Foundation will invite the institution to its second round, the full fellowship application.
The fellowship application is reviewed by a Selection Committee, which is comprised of members of the Foundation’s Scientific Advisory Board. Fellowship applications are judged on originality, soundness, contribution to progress within the field, the quality of institutional support, and the mentoring and training plan, among other factors.
Feedback will be given on all applications and candidates may reapply. KTGF offers feedback with the hope that it will be helpful in advancing each applicant’s research career. The feedback will reflect some of the most salient responses from the selection committee but it is not intended as a comprehensive summary. For those who reapply, KTGF cannot predict either the level of funding or the quality or number of future applications. Therefore, KTGF cannot assure future submissions will be successful, even if they address the concerns reflected in the feedback.
The schedule for our application process is as follows:
October: The nomination round is opened online
January: Nominations are due January 10, 2014 at midnight EST
February: Fellowship Applications are invited
April: Fellowship Applications are due March 21, 2014 at midnight EST
May: Awards are announced
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Foundation at email@example.com and we will respond promptly.
Request for Applications: American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Pilot Research Award for Attention Disorders
Deadline: April 30, 2014
The AACAP Pilot Research Award for Attention Disorders, supported by The Elaine Schlosser Lewis Fund, offers $15,000 for child and adolescent psychiatry residents and junior faculty who have an interest in beginning a career in child and adolescent mental health research. By providing one award to a child and adolescent psychiatry junior faculty member or resident for pilot research on attention disorders, we support a young investigator at a critical stage, encouraging a future career in child and adolescent psychiatry research. The recipient has the opportunity to submit a poster presentation on his or her research for 62nd Annual Meeting in San Antonio, TX, October 26 – November 1, 2015.
• Candidates must be board eligible/certified in child and adolescent psychiatry, or enrolled in a child psychiatry residency or fellowship program.
• Candidates must have a faculty appointment in an accredited medical school or be in a fully accredited child and adolescent psychiatry clinical research or training program.
• At the time of application, candidates may not have more than two years’ experience following graduation from residency/fellowship training.
• Candidates must not have any previous significant, individual research funding in the field of child and adolescent mental health. These include the following: NIMH/NIH Funding (Small Grants, R-01) or similar foundation or industry research funding. Candidates who have received or are currently receiving "T32" funding support are eligible to apply.
• Candidates must either be AACAP members or have a membership application pending (not paid by the award) and agree to submit a poster presentation on his or her research for AACAP’s 62nd Annual Meeting in San Antonio, TX, October 26 – November 1, 2015.
• Application Form
• A letter of intent, no more than seven pages (single spaced, no less than 12 pt. font and 1" margins), including four pages of research protocol, a one page detailed project timeline, one page budget and justification, and one page addressing the inclusion or exclusion of women and minorities. (References may exceed the page limit).
• The research protocol should include the following sections: significance and specific aims, hypotheses, background and rationale, and a research plan (including data analysis plan). Research may be pre-clinical, epidemiological, or clinical.
• The detailed project timeline should list tentative dates of all procedures for the proposed research project. These include but are not limited to: data collection processes, analysis of results, and final report writing.
• The budget should contain sufficient detail so that each item can be separately judged. Computer related items (e.g., personal computers, printers, modems, etc.) are extremely unlikely to receive budget approval. No salary support for the principal investigator will be provided. No indirect costs for the institution will be provided. Typical budget items may include but are not limited to: subject honoraria and travel expenses, instrumentation costs, assay and lab test costs, and/or payment to research assistants.
• If women or minorities will not be included, detailed justification of the rationale for their exclusion is mandatory. Such exclusion may lower enthusiasm for the proposal.
• A letter of support from section chief or department chair.
• A letter of support from the proposed mentor.
• Candidate's current curriculum vitae.
• Letter detailing any current research funding (role on project, title, type of project, and source of funds).
(Human and Animal Subjects must be verified at time of award and do not need to be included with the application.)
The award recipient is encouraged to work with a child and adolescent psychiatric investigator with expertise in his or her particular area of interest. Work must be completed within one year of receipt of the award. Submission of the pilot data is due in June 2015. Funding is up to $15,000 beginning on August 1, 2014 and ending November 1, 2015 (the time the award-funded research is presented at the 2015 AACAP Annual Meeting). Any unused funds must be returned to the AACAP.
AACAP has the right to waive informalities.
All completed applications and attachments must be submitted by April 30, 2014.
