What is an Early Career Investigator?
An early career investigator is an individual who is an undergraduate student, graduate student, medical student, post-doctoral student, or less than five years out of a doctoral program in a field relevant to psychiatric genetics.
The 2015 ECIP application process is closed for 2015.
The Travel Award is meant to defray part of the costs incurred to attend the meeting. Award funds range between $500 – $2,000 USD, depending on the actual costs of the travel involved. Travel Awardees are entitled to register at the student rate. Additionally, one senior researcher will serve as a mentor to one or two early career investigators. The mentor and investigator will have an opportunity to establish contact prior to the meeting.
Criteria for Selection:
In order to be part of the program, applicants will be evaluated based on the following:
• Quality of submitted abstract
• Personal Statement
• Letter of support by your immediate supervisor
Travel awards will be considered by all the above plus need for funds. Distance from Toronto, Canada will be considered. Minority Early Career Investigators are encouraged to apply.
