We are pleased to announce a call for applications for the 2021 Health and Behavior International Collaborative Award!
This award is to facilitate a collaboration with an international laboratory or research group under the guidance of an identified international mentor. Due to pandemic travel restrictions, this competition has been reformatted for 2021 to exclude travel and site visits. This year, winners will receive $1,000 USD to offset costs of collaborative activities.
Applicants can be trainees or early career researchers or professionals within 5 years of completing their terminal degree (career disruptions excluded). This year, there are six awards, sponsored by the International Society of Behavioral Medicine (ISBM), the International Behavioural Trials Network (IBTN), the Society for Health Psychology of the American Psychological Association (SfHP), the American Psychosomatic Society (APS), the Society of Behavioral Medicine (SBM), and the German Society of Behavioral Medicine (DGVM).
Applications are due May 2, 2021. Applicants will be notified via email by the Health and
Behavior International Collaborative Award Committee regarding the outcome of their applications in June 2021.
