Winners of Targeted Research Grants and Student Grants

I am pleased to announce the recipient of the 2021 Society of Pediatric Psychology Targeted Research Grant. This year we had 6 applications. The following proposal was selected for funding by the Targeted Research Grant Committee due to its scientific merit and alignment with the goals of this program, namely, to fund junior investigators whose work shows great potential for future major grant funding. This proposal also aligned with our priority areas, as specified in the Call for Proposals.
