APCS Announces a "Flexibility Fund" for Clinical Science Doctoral Students

The Academy's Student Engagement Committee (led by Drs. Christal Badour at Kentucky, Justin Lavner at Georgia, and Nick Eaton at Stony Brook) is pleased to announce that "Flexibility Fund" training grants will be available for the 2017-2018 academic year.  This new program will provide financial support for current graduate students from Academy programs who with to receive advanced training in clinical science that is not available to them at their home institutions.  These experiences could include, but are not limited to, statistical and methodological training, time visiting in a faculty member's lab at a different institution, clinical workshops in evidence-based practice (that are directly relevant to ongoing research), or other training opportunities. Conferences are allowable only if there is a significant training component involved (e.g., a pre-conference workshop that requires a special registration).

Several grants ranging from $1,000 to $2,000 will be issued and can be applied toward travel costs (e.g., flights, lodging, per diem) and/or training costs (e.g., workshop fees). Applicants should submit a detailed budget request with their application.  Please see attached Flex Fund Announcement with requirements for the application, deadlines, and where the application should be sent.
