Diversity Program in Neuroscience Fellowship

From the American Psychological Association:


Do you want to take charge of your career? Do you need financial support for graduate school or postdoctoral studies? Are you interested in ethnic minority issues? Then the Minority Fellowship Program is for you!

The Minority Fellowship Program (MFP) offers the following fellowships

The Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (MHSAS) Fellowship is aimed at those pursuing doctoral degrees in clinical, counseling, and school psychology, or other mental health services areas. This program is primarily for individuals who want to deliver services.

The MHSAS Postdoctoral Fellowship is aimed at early career doctoral recipients who are interested in developing a career in mental health service delivery, policy, or services-related research.

The Diversity Program in Neuroscience Fellowship is geared to those pursuing careers in neuroscience. Predoctoral and postdoctoral fellowships are offered. Doctoral students or early career doctoral recipients in psychology or any life science discipline related to neuroscience may apply.

Note: Individuals may apply to only one of the MFP fellowships.

The application deadline is January 15.

About the Minority Fellowship Program
The MFP’s mission is to increase the knowledge and research related to ethnic minority mental health and to improve the quality of mental health and substance abuse services delivered to ethnic minority populations. We do this by providing financial support, professional development activities, and professional guidance to students pursuing doctoral degrees in psychology and neuroscience. Our mission is consistent with Healthy People 2010, the Surgeon General’s Report on Mental Health, and other federal initiatives to reduce health disparities.
