2019 Health and Behavior International Collaborative Award

Applications are due May 1, 2019.

Dear members of the ISBM Governing Council

We are pleased to announce a call for applications for the 2019 Health and Behavior International Collaborative Award! This year, the award is sponsored by the Society for Health Psychology of the American Psychological Association (SfHP), the International Society of Behavioral Medicine (ISBM), the American Psychosomatic Society (APS), the Society of Behavioral Medicine (SBM), and the International Behavioural Trials Network (IBTN).

The purpose of the award is to facilitate a minimum of one week visit to an international laboratory or research group under the guidance of an identified international mentor. The proposed visit will be based on aims to pursue a specific research project or a specific program development project in the areas of health research, clinical behavioral health, or health promotion.

The applicant will receive $3,000 USD to offset costs of travel and accommodations to visit the lab of an international mentor. Five awards will be competitively granted this year. Applicants can be trainees or early career researchers or professionals within 5 years of completing their terminal degree (career disruptions excluded).

Applications are due May 1, 2019. Applicants will be notified via email by the Health and
