ITR Summer Fellowship Program

The Institute for Translational Research in Children’s Mental Health (ITR) is pleased to provide three 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.

ITR Mission: ITR is designed to bridge the vast research to practice gap in children’s mental health. Our mission is to advance quality research, clinical training, and information dissemination in evidence-based practices focused on children’s mental health and development for ages 0 to 18.

Types of Research Awards: Collaborative research proposals may involve the use of secondary data or a new research proposal. Projects will not be awarded that are solely literature reviews.

Fellowship Award: Students will receive a $4,000 summer stipend with an expectation to commit 20-25 hours/week to a research project under the direction of an ITR faculty. It is expected that students will work toward a finished project, such as a conference proposal, article, or grant application. Students must attend ITR colloquia meetings during the following academic year, as well as give a project presentation at an ITR colloquia if asked. This is a one-time award. Students who have previously received ITR fellowships are not eligible to apply.

ITR Faculty Project Advisor: Interested students should collaborate with and identify an ITR faculty member.
