Donald J. Cohen Fellowship Program (DJCFP)
Call for 2018 DJCP fellows
Applications are now open. We look forward to your submissions for the 2018 Donald J. Cohen Fellowship Program for International Scholars in Child and Adolescent Mental Health. DJCFP is a training program for young professionals modelled on successful activities at previous IACAPAP Congresses and Research Seminars. Approximately twenty fellows will be selected to take part in this valuable training opportunity.
The purpose of these awards is to foster the professional development of emerging leaders in child and adolescent mental health throughout the world. It is designed for individuals whose engagement could play a pivotal role in addressing the very specific needs of their country of origin. The program will include:
- Daily small group meetings with leading experts serving as mentors
- Dedicated poster presentations attended by senior faculty members
- Special seminars
- Social activities
- Free registration fee for the general sessions
- Accommodation in Prague
- Possible partial support of travelling expenditures to the Congress
- Complete Application
- Submission of a project suitable for a poster or oral presentation at the Congress (to be submitted through the regular abstract submission system of the Congress website).
- Good command of English
- A recommendation letter from your supervisor or a more senior colleague.
We encourage all interested and eligible candidates to apply. We especially welcome applications from countries where child and adolescent mental health needs are under-served and under-represented. We also strongly encourage applicants to reach out to their IACAPAP regional coordinators (contact list below) to seek assistance with their submissions process, if any is required.
Applications closed on 8 January 2018.
