Call for Applications: 2022-2023 Council Grants Program

The Council Grants Program is now accepting applications from junior and senior investigators who are conducting innovative research in global mental health.

Funded by the Council for the Advancement of Research in Global Mental Health,  the Council Grants Program supports new investigators and new ideas in global mental health with one-year pilot grants. It serves as a catalyst for generating and supporting novel projects that improve the knowledge, training or practice of mental health around the globe, especially in low-resource settings.

Each award will provide a maximum of $20,000 for one year. Approximately 3-4 awards will be awarded, depending on availability.

The grants are open to:

  • Early investigators committed to a research career relevant to global mental health. Applicants can have a Columbia appointment or, if not, must collaborate with a Columbia faculty member. Early investigators will submit their applications with a senior Columbia-affiliated faculty member in a multiple Principal Investigator (MPI) format.
  • Senior investigators seeking to develop new and innovative applications of their research in a global mental health context. Senior investigators must have a Columbia appointment, or submit the application with a Columbia-affiliated investigator in an MPI format

Overview of Timeline:

  • Applications are due by June 1, 2022.
  • Notification of Grant Recipients by August 15, 2022.
