The CPNP Foundation is excited to announce the Defining the Future Research Grant Program for students and residents. Grantees will be required to complete a research project in time to present their results as a poster at the CPNP 2016 Annual Meeting at The Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, Colorado to be held April 17-20, 2016.
Grants of up to $1500 each will be awarded to up to three applicants. Projects must focus on one of the current interests of the Foundation which are stigma associated with psychiatric and neurologic disorders and comprehensive medication management as a best practice. The Foundation will also sponsor a CPNP Foundation Strategic Goals Award which will award $500 to the best poster at the annual meeting addressing stigma or comprehensive medication management. Applications for the grant will be submitted online and are due September 1, 2015. The recipients will be announced October 1st. The project abstract must be submitted through the poster submission process, due in early January. Watch CPNP announcements in the coming months for more information. The Foundation is looking forward to the enthusiasm and creativity of students and residents to develop projects that will improve the care of patients with psychiatric and neurologic disorders.
