The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP) Pilot Research Award, supported by Industry Supporters, offers financial support for general psychiatry residents who have an interest in beginning a career in child and adolescent mental health research.

Award Requirements:
  • Candidates must be enrolled in a general psychiatry residency.
  • Candidates must not have any previous significant, individual research funding in the field of child and adolescent mental health. These include the following: NIMH/NIH funding (Small Grants, R-01) or similar foundation or industry research funding. Candidates who have received or are currently receiving "T32" funding support are eligible to apply.
  • Candidates must either be AACAP members or have a membership application pending (not paid by the award) and agree to submit a poster presentation on their research for AACAP’s 72nd Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL, October 20-25, 2025.

Award recipients are encouraged to work with a child and adolescent psychiatric investigator with expertise in their particular area of interest. Work must be completed within one year of receipt of the award. Submission of the pilot data is due in June 2024. Funding is up to $15,000 beginning on August 1, 2024 and ending October 31, 2025 (the time the award-funded research is presented at the 2025 AACAP Annual Meeting). Any unused funds must be returned to AACAP. All awardees are expected to attend any required events at the Annual Meeting at AACAP’s discretion.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Letters of support must be uploaded by the endorser (i.e., section chief or department chair, and mentor). Please notify endorsers of this process and the application deadline.
