Announcing Targeted Research Grants

New $20,000 research grant to fund emerging areas in pediatric psychology.

SPP is pleased to announce a new opportunity for research funding: the Targeted Research Grant program. This annual program was established to fund research projects that will contribute to priority and emerging areas in the field of pediatric psychology, allowing investigators to collect pilot data to aid in securing additional major grant funding.
For the 2013 award cycle, the priority areas  follows:
  1. Technology (eHealth interventions and information and communication technologies).
  2. Healthcare cost-offset research.
  3. Primary care-focused practice or interventions.
  4. Studies of novel measurement/assessment strategies (e.g., validation of new questionnaires focused on patient-reported outcomes).
SPP will award up to two grants in the amount of $20,000 each to cover one year of funding to those research proposals demonstrating the greatest merit and potential for success. Although priority will be given to young investigators (within seven years of PhD), investigators at any stage of career are encouraged to apply. For example, a mid-career researcher who is moving into a new emerging research area would be eligible to apply.
Letters of intent are due July 1 and invited full proposals October 1 for a January start date.
