Drotar-Crawford Postdoctoral Fellowship Research Grant in Pediatric Psychology

Deadline: October 15
Sponsor: Division 54


This $10,000 grant is given to a postdoctoral fellow to support research in pediatric psychology while they are enrolled in a postdoctoral fellowship. The research project must be conducted under the supervision of a faculty advisor in an area of research specific to pediatric psychology.  The budget may span up to two years (e.g. $10,000 in total for up to two years). Up to $1000 of the award may be allocated for travel related to research training, collaborations, or for presentation of research findings. Funds are not provided for indirect costs, stipends of the fellow or costs associated with manuscript preparation.

Generous support from Peggy Crawford, PhD, her late husband Dennis (“Denny”) Drotar, PhD, and an anonymous donor provides up to two awards annually.  In addition to his faculty appointments in Cleveland and Cincinnati, Denny served as a President of SPP and was a former Editor of the Journal of Pediatric Psychology. He was devoted to training and research mentoring and wanted to support the research training of future generations of pediatric psychologists. Peggy is a psychologist whose work focuses on chronic illness, with a particular interest in multiple sclerosis. Peggy is well known to many members of SPP as a close partner with Denny in supporting the training of psychologists.
