CHADD Young Scientist Awards Taking Applications

Are you an emerging ADHD researcher, working on a doctoral degree, or have completed a doctoral degree in 2015 or later? Do you know or work with someone who is? 

Applications for CHADD’s Young Scientist Research Awards are now being accepted. 

Each Young Scientist Research Award includes an unrestricted $1,000 cash award and most expenses paid to attend the 2018 Annual International Conference on ADHD in St. Louis, Missouri, Nov. 8-11.

Recipients receive a one-year CHADD professional membership.

  • biological/genetic underpinnings of the disorder
  • treatment efficacy
  • impact on the individual or family
  • school or workplace accommodations
    social stigma and discrimination
