The purpose of the award is to facilitate mentorship collaborations with international laboratories or research groups under the guidance of an international mentor. Selected mentorship collaborations will pursue specific research or program development projects in the areas of health research, clinical behavioral health, behavioral medicine, or health promotion. Winners are each awarded USD$3,000 to offset the costs of travel and collaborative activities that contribute to building their mentor partnerships.
The quality of the 2023 applications was excellent, and applicants included individuals at various career stages including graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, and early career faculty members. Mentors come from nine different host countries, highlighting the international international reach of the award.
