Harvey L. and Maud C. Sorensen Foundation
Since 1963, the Harvey L. and Maud C. Sorensen Foundation has supported children’s health in California. In 2023, the Foundation’s Board of Directors established The Harvey L. and Maud C. Sorensen Foundation Career Award in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry. This prestigious award aims to support either clinician-scientists as they transition from their fellowship training to junior faculty positions or junior faculty in their first three years who are seeking permanent, tenure-track positions at accredited medical schools in California. The Foundation’s long-term goals are to support translational research that will result in effective preventions and treatments for children with psychiatric disorders, to address the growing shortage of child and adolescent psychiatrists who are pursing academic research careers, and to cultivate mentors to succeeding generations of child psychiatrists.
The Harvey L. and Maud C. Sorensen Foundation invites early-career child and adolescent psychiatrists who are pursuing academic research careers to apply to the 2024 Career Award in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry (CAP).
Career Awards will be awarded on a competitive, peer-reviewed basis and will provide $200,000 in annual funding for a maximum of three years based on scientific review and progress.
