DHD Research Award Program 2015 – Applications Now Available

CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) is pleased to announce the 2015 Young Scientist Research Awards, a program to recognize young researchers making contributions to the understanding of ADHD. 

Two awards will each include an unrestricted cash prize of $1,000, recognition at CHADD’s 27th Annual International Conference in New Orleans, conference travel, registration and expense allowance, a one-year professional membership to CHADD, and recognition in CHADD's Attention magazine and on CHADD’s website.  Applicants must be in the process of completing a doctoral degree or have completed one within the last three years with the doctoral degree awarded no earlier than January 2012.

Research may address any area relevant to ADHD including, but not limited to: biological/genetic underpinnings of the disorder; treatment efficacy; impact on the individual or family; school or workplace accommodations; social stigma and discrimination; public health; and epidemiology.

The awards are currently being supported by a number of individual donations.
