Mental Health National Research Service Awards for Research Training

Published on AidPage by IDILOGIC on Jun 24, 2005

Purpose of this program:

To ensure a continuing and adequate supply of well-trained scientists who are able to conduct research on mental health problems. The program provides training grants to institutions and fellowships to individuals at both the predoctoral and postdoctoral levels. There are awards to medical students proposing to acquire doctoral research degrees in addition to their medical degrees. In addition, there are special programs designed to address the underrepresentation of women and ethnic minority groups in biomedical and behavioral science relevant to mental health. Awards are made for training in the areas of basic and clinical neuroscience, genetics, developmental, behavioral, clinical, epidemiological, prevention, treatment and services research relevant to mental illness, behavioral disorders, and HIV/AIDS; and programs designed to increase the number of individuals in mental health research who are from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, or individuals disadvantaged because of educational or other circumstances that have inhibited their ability to pursue such a career.
