The American Psychiatric Association is pleased to announce the continuation of the annual APA/Lilly Resident Research Award Competition. This award, supported by an unrestricted educational grant from Eli Lilly and Company provides an honorarium of $1,500 to five psychiatry residents who submit the best, original, unpublished scientific paper. In addition, a $1,000 award is given to the residency program in which the resident was in training at the time the work was completed. The award will be presented to the recipients during the 2014 APA Annual Meeting in New York, NY.
Each resident may submit one document which outlines the scope and results of the research conducted. The research study should be in the form of a finished paper suitable for publication. Please note that the paper must describe original scientific research; case reports and literature reviews will not be accepted. Applications will not be accepted from previous winners of this award.
In order to ensure a fair and impartial review, the Award Board reviews each submission anonymously with no identifying information on the resident or the affiliated training program. It would therefore be helpful if the resident’s name is not printed on each page of the document.
The nomination packet should include the following:
All submissions must be postmarked no later than Monday, December 2, 2013, to be considered. Papers postmarked after that date will not be accepted.
