Active Minds Emerging Scholars Fellowship
Date: Project proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis December 1, 2011 - January 3, 2012. Preference will be given to early submissions.
The Active Minds Emerging Scholars Fellowship is currently seeking proposals for unique and thought-provoking research or creative projects related to mental health!
The Emerging Scholars Fellowship program aims to expand the body of literature, creative expression, and discourse devoted to mental health with a particular emphasis on issues relevant to young adult communities. The Fellowship program encourages creativity in the development of a project that reflects interest in behavioral health issues; a wide range of project types are likely to receive funding. Emerging Scholars will be awarded a $750 stipend to support their work and may apply for an additional $250 in reimbursement for material expenses.
Please download the 2012 Call for Proposals online at http://www.activeminds.org/scholars. Completed proposals must be submitted using our online form, also online. All applicants will be notified by January 12. The Emerging Scholars Fellowship encourages proposals from all interested currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate students and is dedicated to maximizing diversity within the Scholar network.
The Active Minds Emerging Scholars Fellowship, generously supported by the Scattergood Foundation for Behavioral Health, provides an opportunity for students to complete funded, independent mental health projects and to be connected with a network of young scholars and national experts in the field of behavioral health.
