Announcement IMH Marshall Scholars and Fellows Program in Mental Health and Call for Application



Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce that the Institute of Mental Health (IMH) has established the Marshall Scholars and Fellows Program in Mental Health to support training of young investigators in translational research in order to create research capacity in mental health.

The idea of investing in promising young scholars who will contribute to advancing understanding and treatment of psychiatric disorders was inspired by Sunny and Stewart Marshall’s vision, and therefore, we would like to take this opportunity to thank Sunny and Stewart for their support, dedication, and commitment to advance mental health research.

The Institute of Mental Health in partnership with the Department of Psychiatry is now inviting applications from qualified candidates for Scholar and Fellow awards which will be supported by the Marshall Scholars and Fellows Program in Mental Health. The program will fund stipends of $75,000 per year for each Fellow and $25,000 per year for each Scholar, for up to two years. The program is expected to fund up to 4 fellows and 15 scholars each year.

Please find the attached application form, along with further information and guidelines. The complete application package must be submitted electronically to Corinne Carpenter ( before the deadline (March 31, 2019 no later than 4:30 pm, Pacific Time).  We encourage all qualified applicants to apply and I would like to ask that this information be circulated widely

If you have questions or require further information regarding these awards, please contact Vicky Yau, Director, Administration, at
