Short-term Visiting Fellowships

The Alicia Koplowitz Foundation grants eight fellowships to fund short visits abroad for research in the fields of psychiatry, psychology, neuroscience and neuropediatric.

The Foundation invites applications for short-term visiting fellowships for training and research in child and adolescence psychiatry, clinical psychology or neuroscience and in neuropediatric. These fellowships are intended for three groups:

    • Psychiatrists and clinical psychologists with training in childhood and adolescence.
    • Postdoctoral researchers in the neurosciences with degrees in medicine, biology, or pharmaceutics.
    • Pediatricians and neurologists in neuropediatric.

Theses short-term fellowships essentially consist of financial support, since fellowship holders are free to choose the centres at which they will carry out their projects. The Alicia Koplowitz Foundation intends these fellowships to support research in the area of child and adolescent psychiatry and to broaden its support for research in the neurosciences and in neuropediatric.

These fellowships provide financial support of 3,000-4,000 euros per month for visits to foreign hospitals, universities and research institutes that have programs suited to the Foundation's areas of interest.

Each year the Alicia Koplowitz Foundation awards some Fellowships for Advanced Training abroad to psychiatrists or clinical psychologists who wish to specialize in child and adolescent psychology as well as Pre-doctoral Fellowships in Child and Adolescent Mental Health and Advanced Training in neuropediatric.

These fellowships fund programs tailored to their recipients in highly respected university departments and hospitals in the United States, Sweden, United Kingdom and Netherlands.

The fellowship holders participate in the child and adolescent psychiatry training programs of their host departments and hospitals. The bulk of their work is related to the clinical research being done in the department. Fellowship holders participate actively in the centres educational program of seminars, workshops, etc. As much as possible, they fulfil the same rotations in the training program as their local peers (local laws and customs permitting). Moreover, each fellowship holder is assigned a mentor from among the specialists at the centre where he or she is training and an Spanish mentor who is an exfellow at the host centre.

When training abroad is completed, the Foundation offers fellowship holders a chance to join psychiatry departments or research centres for a twelve-month period to facilitate their professional incorporation in Spain.

Each fellowship pays 36,000 pounds per year for those training in Britain, 50,000 dollars per year for those training in the United States and 45,000 euros per year for those training in Sweden and in the Netherlands.
