The training of a new generation of psychiatric academicians is a major objective of the Society of Biological Psychiatry (SOBP). SOBP annually selects distinguished Early Career Investigators (ECI) from North American institutions to be a part of the Travel Fellowship Award program. Applicants qualify based on their home institution. e.g. a person currently studying at a US institution but whose primary affiliation is an international institution should apply for the ECI-International Award. All applicants must complete the on-line application. The following should be attached to the application: A letter of nomination by the Department or Program Chair or faculty mentor. A NIH biosketch (preferred) or short curriculum vita not to exceed 6 pages. A one-page statement of career interests and objectives describing how attendance at the SOBP meeting will facilitate achieving the applicant's goals. Follow the fellowship web page to get further details about the application process and materials (especially the deadlines and application links). More information shall be published when the application period is open/active.
