Australian Rotary Health and Alliance for the Prevention of Mental Disorders Awards for Research Excellence 2016

The ARH-APMD awards recognise excellence in research in the area of prevention of mental disorders and are intended for researchers whose work is beginning to make a significant impact, reflecting either scientific excellence or public impact (or both). There are three categories of award:

PhD candidate award

The applicant will be a PhD candidate who has published one or more peer-reviewed journal articles in the area of prevention of mental disorders. Applicants who have been awarded a PhD will also be eligible if the article was included as part of their PhD thesis. The awardee receives a certificate and $500.
