The Small Grants Program supports new investigators and innovative ideas in global mental health with one-year pilot grants. The program aims to serve 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.

This award will provide a maximum of $20,000 for one year. Approximately 2-4 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.
