Fahs-Beck Fund for Research and Experimentation: Mental Health Research

Established in 1993, the Fahs-Beck Fund for Research and Experimentation supports research that contributes to a greater understanding of and solutions for problems affecting individuals, families, and communities.

To that end, the fund is inviting applications for its Faculty/Post-Doctoral Research Grant Program, which will award grants of up to $25,000 in support of faculty or postdoctoral research. Areas of interest identified by the fund include studies to develop, refine, evaluate, or disseminate interventions and preventive/intervention to address social, psychological, behavioral, or public health problems affecting children, adults, couples, families, and communities with outcomes that have the potential to add to the knowledge base of services and program development. Community-engaged research is highly valued.

Applicants must be a faculty member at an accredited college or university in the United States or Canada, and their research must focus on the U.S. or Canada, or on a comparison between the U.S. or Canada and at least one other country. The principal investigator also must have earned a doctorate in a relevant discipline as well as relevant experience.

The fall portal will be open from October 1 through November 1, 2021.
