The Fellows Award supports talented researchers with bold ideas from across the globe, who aspire to be the next generation leaders in mental health research, as they establish their independence.

MQ seeks to fund a diverse research portfolio that reflects a bio-psycho-social approach to mental health. The MQ Fellows Awards are open to researchers anywhere in the world and from all disciplines related to mental health research. Research may involve theoretical, experimental, social sciences or medical humanities approaches. Aligning with the work of our Brighter Futures Programme, applications to the 2020 MQ Fellows Award must have a focus on children and young people (which we define as from prenatal development up to 24 years of age). Projects should focus on genuine impact by charting, informing, developing and/or testing preventative or therapeutic interventions.

With the Fellows Award, MQ aims to support the most promising early career scientists, clinician-scientists and researchers working to launch their independent research careers in the field of mental health. Awardees will be asking questions that can bring transformational advances in mental health science, undertaking research with the potential to improve the lives of young people living with mental illness. 

Submission window will open 24th February 2020.

The deadline for submitting applications is the Friday 3rd April 2020 at 17:00 BST.
