Funding Opportunities

American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
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.

Application Deadline: March 30, 2018

For more information visit the AACAP website.

AAP Foundation
The American Academy of Periodontology Foundation is accepting applications for its Bud and Linda Tarrson Fellowship program. The fellowship is a $30,000 award ($10,000 a year, for up to three years) for periodontists pursuing a career in academia and is not intended to replace support that would normally have been provided by the recipient's institution. To be eligible, applicants must be either a full-time faculty member at the instructor or assistant level or a part-time faculty member at an institution of higher education in the United States. Eligible candidates must have been affiliated for ten years or less with a degree-granting institution and have a career goal focused on teaching and research in periodontology. Applications will be accepted only from candidates at U.S. institutions. The top three candidates must attend the AAP annual meeting, where they will be interviewed preceding the opening of the meeting.

Application Deadline: May 01, 2018

For more information visit the AAP website.

Lighthouse Works
Lighthouse Works, a nonprofit arts organization, is devoted to encouraging the development of artists at any stage of their career and to the enrichment of the year-round cultural and economic vitality of Fishers Island, New York.

To that end, the organization is inviting applications for the 2018 summer and fall cycle of its fellowship program. Fellowships run for six weeks and include studio space and group housing on Fishers Island, food, a $250 travel allowance, and a stipend of $1,500 to defray the costs of shipping materials, the purchase of art supplies, and other expenses incurred in making artwork in a remote location. (The organization believes that no artist should have to spend money to accept the opportunity of a fellowship.)

While fellows' primary obligation is to the solitary pursuit of their creative projects, every artist is expected to participate in a single studio tour, reading, or performance for the public at the conclusion of their fellowship. In addition, fellows have the chance (though they are not required) to teach workshops or mentor students in collaboration with the Art and English department at the Fishers Island School.

While the program accepts artists working in a wide range of disciplines, it is best able to accommodate visual artists, writers, and musicians. Artistic excellence is the primary criterion for acceptance as a Lighthouse Works fellow.

Application Deadline: February 15, 2018

For more information visit the Lighthouse Works website.

PADI Foundation
The PADI Foundation encourages and supports research and education related to aquatic environments. Since 1992, the foundation has awarded nearly $4.7 million to almost nine hundred projects.

In 2018, the foundation will award grants of up to $20,000 to support projects that enrich mankind's understanding of and concern for aquatic environments; increase understanding of sport diving physics and physiology and add to the scientific understanding of man's relationship and ability to survive in the underwater environment; and/or improve understanding of, and response to, hazards to humans and ecosystems related to climate change in coastal and ocean environments. Generally, the foundation will not fund overhead or other indirect expenses.

Application Deadline: February 01, 2018

PhRMA Foundation
The PhRMA Foundation is accepting applications for its Health Outcomes program. Health outcomes research spans a broad spectrum of issues related to healthcare delivery, from studies evaluating the effectiveness of a pharmaceutical intervention to the impact of reimbursement policies on outcomes of care. It also ranges from the development of tools to perform patient-based assessments to analyses of the ways in which results of outcomes research are disseminated to providers or consumers to encourage behavior change.

Through the program, one-year grants of up to $100,000 will be awarded to assist individuals embarking on an independent research career in health outcomes at the faculty level.

Schools of medicine, pharmacy, public health, nursing, and dentistry are eligible to apply. The program is not intended for individuals in postdoctoral training. Individuals enrolled in postdoctoral training programs scheduled to conclude by July 1, 2018, who also expect to hold an academic appointment by that time may apply. Those holding the academic rank of instructor or assistant professor, and investigators at the doctoral level with equivalent positions, also are eligible to apply — provided the proposed research is neither directly nor indirectly subsidized to any significant degree by an extramural support mechanism. All applicants must be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States.

Application Deadline: February 01, 2018
