2013 AAS Pre-Conference Research Training Day Travel Award

The Military Suicide Research Consortium (MSRC) co-Directors, Drs. Gutierrez and Joiner, are pleased to announce the founding of a pre-conference research training day. The MSRC pre-conference research training day is to be held prior to the 2013 American Association of Suicidology (AAS) conference, in Austin, TX. This opportunity is available to up to 10 trainees who at the time of application are students or research fellows across levels of training (graduate to post-doctoral). The purpose of the training day is to provide those with an interest in developing their skills as military/Veteran suicide researchers with intensive training to move a specific relevant project forward. The core features of the Research Training Day Workshop include a) a didactic session including a presentation on grant writing, grants mechanisms, data analysis, and research ethics; b) small group meetings of mentors and fellows to discuss fellows’ grant applications, research papers, and career issues; c) and a luncheon. A $1,000 stipend will be provided to cover travel expenses, registration fees for the workshop, and accommodations.
