Applications are now being accepted for The Royal-Mach-Gaensslen Prize for Mental Health Research, which was established by The Royal’s Institute of Mental Health Research (IMHR) in 2015 to recognize and support Canadian early-career researchers with a focus in the area of mental health.

The annual national Prize provides funding to outstanding rising star career researchers who are affiliated with a Canadian academic or clinical research institution in the field of mental health, to encourage them to continue to pursue their research interests. It recognizes those with a demonstrated track record in research with excellence in scientific rigor, innovative thinking, imagination and originality and a clear ability to work in partnership with other disciplines and/or research teams external to the institution with which they are affiliated.

The annual Prize is funded by a generous donation from the Mach-Gaensslen Foundation of Canada, building upon the wishes of its founders, Mr. Vaclav Mach and Dr. Hanni Gaensslen, to support mental health research. Each year for ten years, $100,000 will be awarded to one person or a research team of up to three persons per competition. The Prize is awarded with the expectation that the recipient(s) will continue to demonstrate excellence in their field of work. If no appropriate candidate is found, the Prize will be deferred for one year.

Candidates shall be exceptional rising star researchers who are 45 years of age or younger at the application date, are Canadian citizens or have landed immigrant status in Canada and are currently residing in Canada or are residing abroad but are committed to return to Canada within six months from the date the Prize is awarded. In addition, they shall be affiliated with a Canadian academic or clinical institution and their research shall be in a mental health discipline. Please refer to the Prize Guidelines for full eligibility requirements and additional application details.

The 2017 deadline for applications is July 15, 2017.
