Tourette Association of America: Young Investigator Award

The Tourette Association of America works to encourage early-career researchers to invest their efforts and expertise in increasing biological understanding of Tourette Syndrome.

To that end, the organization welcomes applications for the TAA Young Investigator Award. Through the program, grants of up to $80,000 a year for up to two years will be awarded to early-career investigators in support of career development objectives, as well as clinical research aimed at improving patient care and the development and testing of new therapies.

To be eligible, applicants must have an advanced degree (e.g., PhD, MD, or equivalent) and be a postdoctoral fellow and/or independent clinical/research faculty member within five years of their first independent faculty appointment. Investigators from outside the U.S. are eligible to apply.

Pre-proposals are due December 4. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal by February 1, 2021.
