Summer Fellowship Program

Each summer, ITR provides graduate students with summer support to pursue collaborative research projects involving the development or expansion of evidence-based prevention or treatment interventions in children’s mental health.

Collaborative Seed Grants

ITR’s Collaborative Seed Grant Program supports small research projects that advance the use of evidence-based practices in addressing pressing issues for children’s mental health. Each project partners with community organizations in Minnesota. The goal of the program is to kickstart innovative ideas that have a likely chance of becoming larger, sustained research projects with external funding to improve mental health outcomes among Minnesota’s children.

Colloquium Series

Each year, ITR hosts colloquium discussions on critical topics related to its mission of bridging the gap between research and practice in children’s mental health.


ITR hosts conferences and symposia that bring together leading researchers from across the country and world to discuss cutting-edge topics in the field of children’s mental health.
