The Glenda M. MacQueen Memorial Career Development Award for Women in Psychiatry has been created to honour the remarkable accomplishments of the late Glenda MacQueen, through the creation of a career development award (CDA) to support the early-stage development of women who will lead the future of academic psychiatry. As a legacy to Glenda’s contributions to research, training, clinical service, administrative service and mentorship, The Institute of Neurosciences, Mental Health and Addiction (INMHA), in collaboration with the Canadian Psychiatric Association (CPA), seeks to provide financial resources to enhance the potential success of future women leaders who can rise to some of these critical elements of academic achievement in mental health.
The Canadian Institutes of Health Research, through the Institute of Neurosciences, Mental Health and Addiction (CIHR-INMHA), will be the source of funding for the award, which will have a value of $100,000 for one year for one awardee, launched annually for a period of up to five years. The total amount of this award program is $500,000 over five years to fund five applicants.
The first CDA competition will be held in 2021; the successful applicant will be announced at the CPA’s annual conference or AGM in October 2021.
Applicants will submit their complete application for this CDA by Jul. 4, 2021. Beginning in 2022, the application deadline for this CDA will be Feb. 1.
