Call for Proposals is OPEN! – Emerging Scholars Fellowship

Have you ever considered conducting your own research on a topic related to mental and/or behavioral health? Maybe you’ve caught yourself daydreaming about investigating how a certain population interacts with mental illness, or how college students utilize social networks as a coping mechanism, or maybe you’re interested in finding out more about the relationship between gender or race and anxiety. Mental and behavioral health are such vast fields with a wealth of potential for new and innovative research.

If any of this sounds familiar or intriguing to you, you might be a great candidate for the Active Minds Emerging Scholars Fellowship. The Emerging Scholars Fellowship is a grant-funded research fellowship opportunity open to any currently enrolled undergraduate, graduate, or doctoral student interested in conducting their own research or creative project related to mental and/or behavioral health.

The Call for Proposals is NOW OPEN, and applications will be accepted until 9:00pm on Sunday, December 11, 2016. The Fellowship is an opportunity for students to complete funded independent mental health projects, and to be connected to a network of other incredible young scholars and national experts in the field of behavioral health. Our goal is to expand the body of literature, creative expression, and discourse devoted to mental health, and we want YOU to contribute your vision to that goal!

The Emerging Scholars Fellowship funds six months of independent research with a public dissemination component, and runs from January 2017 through June 2017. Apply online today!
