Grants available: 2017 Collaborative Seed Grant Program

The University of Minnesota Institute for Translational Research in Children’s Mental Health (ITR) announces the 2017 Collaborative Seed Grant Program. ITR collaborative seed grants are designed to support small research projects addressing important issues in children’s mental health that align with ITR’s mission, are identified by communities in Minnesota, and have a high likelihood of leading to external funding.

The mission of the Institute for Translational Research in Children’s Mental Health (ITR) is to advance quality research, evidence-based training, and information dissemination focused on children’s mental health and development ages 0 to 18.  ITR provides basic scientific and translational prevention and intervention research leading to the implementation or enhancement of evidence-based programs and practices.

  • Two to three small grants will be awarded to support university-community collaborative participation in small research projects addressing important issues in children’s mental health (maximum award $20,000).
  • Proposed projects must be completed within one year. Projects should be designed to position the research team to apply for external funding to continue their program of research.
  • Letters of Interest are due Monday, May 1, 2017 describing the child and/or family issues you propose to focus on and your capacity to partner with a community entity in research.
