Mental Health Research Grants for Low and Middle-Income Countries
National Institutes of Health is pleased to announce Mental Health Research Awards for Investigators Early in their Career in Low and Middle-Income Countries.
The mission of NIMH is to transform the understanding and treatment of mental illnesses through basic and clinical research, paving the way for recovery, prevention, and cure.
This mission includes supporting the next generation of exceptionally talented and creative scientists who are dedicated to producing the scientific knowledge that will help to prevent, treat, and ultimately cure mental illnesses across diverse populations.
This FOA seeks to assist these individuals in launching an innovative clinical, translational, basic or services research program that holds the potential to enhance our fundamental understanding of mental illnesses, transform prevention and treatment of mental illnesses, and/or to translate evidence into practice and policy in low resource international settings.
This program is designed specifically to support unusually creative investigators with highly innovative research ideas that may lack preliminary data necessary for a traditional R01.
Accordingly, preliminary data are not required or expected but may be included to demonstrate feasibility.
Application budgets are limited to $500,000 in direct costs in any project year and need to reflect the actual needs of the proposed project.
The scope of the proposed project should determine the project period. The maximum project period is 5 years.
NIMH intends to commit $2.5M in FY 2022 to fund 5 to 6 awards.
