ANPA Young Investigator Award

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Same deadline as the submission of abstracts for the coming year

ANPA encourages trainees who submitted abstracts for the annual meeting to apply for a ANPA Young Investigator Award. To qualify for the Young Investigator Award, the applicant must have performed the work described in the abstract while in training.

AWARD: Two award winners will each receive $750 to help defray meeting expenses and complementary registration for the annual meeting. Awardees are expected to attend the entire meeting and will receive the award at the Annual Banquet.

ELIGIBILITY:  Trainees with interest in neuropsychiatry, behavioral neurology, or neuropsychology. Eligible trainees are those who have not yet been appointed as faculty at the time of their application. Examples include: 1) Medical students; 2) Graduate students; 3) Residents in psychiatry or neurology; 4) fellows in neuropsychiatry or behavioral neurology; 5) Pre-doctoral candidates; 6) Post-doctoral fellows. 

APPLICATION PROCESS: Applications should be accompanied by (1) a letter from the applicant’s training director confirming that the work was performed during training, (2) the applicant’s curriculum vitae, and (3) a statement up to 1,000 words describing the applicant’s role in the submitted research, training and interest in neuropsychiatry, behavioral and cognitive neurology, or the clinical neurosciences, and plans for his or her career.

Applications should be submitted by e-mail to: 

SELECTION PROCESS: The Program Committee will choose the recipients based on the quality of the abstract and the candidate’s perceived ability to contribute to the field with the encouragement and support provided by the award. Applicants for the Young Investigator Award, like others who submit abstracts, agree to present the work if the abstract is accepted, regardless of whether a Young Investigator Award is granted.  The award decision will be made at the beginning of January and the decision of the Program Committee is final.
