The American Psychiatric Foundation has released a funding opportunity announcement through its Helping Hands Grant Program that bestows recipients with awards of up to $5,000. These funds are intended for research projects that are initiated and managed by medical school students in their second, third, or fourth year of schooling. The purpose is to investigate mental health and substance use disorders, particularly those that occur in underserved and/or minority communities. Eligible studies must be supervised by medical school faculty members, and at least one physician. Projects that involve partnerships with community agencies, or are part of ongoing medical school outreach efforts are also welcome to apply. Applications must be postmarked by May 31, 2013.
