Fellowship Program Grantees

ABOUT THE KLINGENSTEIN THIRD GENERATION FOUNDATION’S FELLOWS

The Foundation has selected its fellows from a highly competitive cohort of candidates. These awardees come from esteemed academic institutions across the country, and the vast majority continue to produce important research, win government and other grants, and publish their findings in widely read and respected publications. Many of our past fellows have become leaders in the field, breaking new ground in child and adolescent mental health, and mentoring other early career investigators to follow in their paths.
