Young Investigator Submissions are Now Closed

2017 Young Investigator Travel Awards

To stimulate research careers in the field of schizophrenia and provide an educational opportunity for young scientists, the Congress will again offer a competition for Young Investigator Travel Awards. Interested applicants in both basic and clinical areas are encouraged to apply. The award is intended to attract bright, young scientists to the field of schizophrenia research and to this meeting. The contribution of young thinkers to scientific inquiry in any discipline is critical. Of the 121 applicants for the 2015 Young Investigator Travel Award, 35 investigators were selected by the Review Committee as the best of the best. All were commendable and many were superior.

Award recipients will receive a travel stipend and waived registration fee to attend the Congress. (Please do not register until determination has been made.)

All applicants will have the opportunity to present their own original research in either a Poster, Oral or Symposium Session and attend an honorary luncheon.

Applicants must have obtained their PhD or completed their primary specialty residency between September 2011 and September 2016. To be considered, an applicant must submit an abstract by October 20, 2016 using the online abstract submission procedure. Previous recipients of this award are not eligible.
