Description

The Klingenstein Third Generation Foundation awards research grants to post-doctoral investigators at esteemed American medical institutions. At its establishment in 1998, the Foundation funded research fellowships in Child and Adolescent depression. In 2007, the Foundation expanded the Program to include funding for research in Child and Adolescent ADHD. The Foundation has thus far awarded over 30 fellowships, thereby seeding research by this country’s newest crop of investigators. The foundation also funds medical student programs in child and adolescent psychiatry at select medical institutions. With these programs, the Klingenstein Third Generation Foundation seeks to address the need for further research in pediatric ADHD and pediatric depression and the need to cultivate more child and adolescent psychiatrists and psychologists.

The Foundation expects institutions to nominate post-doctorial investigators holding a Ph.D. and/or M.D. who have also completed all clinical training. As a general rule, nominated candidates should be at the junior faculty level, although the Foundation will consider applications nominating candidates in research training programs. Investigators who have already received K awards from NIMH are not eligible for nomination. Investigators who have applied for but have not yet received K awards are eligible for nomination. While fellows may be selected prior to receipt of IRB approval, no fellowship award is finalized until such approval is received.

How to Apply

The Foundation accepts nominations only from the Chair of Departments of Psychiatry. Each medical institutional must select only one research project and investigator for nomination per fellowship. In addition to the Department Chair’s endorsement, the Foundation also requires a mentor to sponsor the project and investigator. The Department Chair may serve as a mentor.
