The APA Young Investigator Award funds projects in health services research, medical education, adolescent medicine, public health, epidemiology, emergency medicine, child maltreatment, hospital medicine, developmental/behavioral pediatrics, and other general pediatric clinical research domains. Each year, at least one award will be given to investigators who identify as underrepresented in medicine (UIM) groups. APA Young Investigator Awardees may receive up to $10,000.
The funds available for this program are determined annually by the APA Board of Directors. The number of awards given is dependent upon the availability of funds and the budgets requested in each submitted proposal.
