Applications for the the 2021 Annual Molecular Psychiatry Meeting
Young Investigator Awards will begin being collected in summer of 2021.
Please note that all submitted science for the 2020 Annual Molecular Psychiatry Meeting will remain on file and will be reviewed for the 2021 meeting. If you submitted science and would like to have it removed from consideration, please email the the MPA Executive Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Travel Award Applications
There are two types of travel awards: (1) for graduate or medical students who are currently enrolled in PhD, MD, or MD/PhD programs and (2) for postdoctoral fellows/medical residents/junior faculty.
For the postdoc/resident/junior faculty level award, applicants must be within 5 years of completing postdoctoral or residency training. Applicants may have a career development award (K-type) but not yet an R-level grant.
Please send your CV or NIH biosketch, a half-page career statement and explanation of why this travel award would be beneficial for you, and one letter of recommendation that also confirms your eligibility (for graduate/medical student award, currently enrolled in PhD, MD, or MD/PhD program; for postdoc/resident/junior faculty award, currently a postdoctoral fellow or resident, or within 5 years of completing training). Preference will be given to those presenting a symposium talk or poster at the meeting.
Only young investigators receiving the awards will be notified in late summer 2021. Awards for both types are for $1,500. Part of the monies must be used to register for the meeting.
