Fellowship Program


The KTGF awards fellowship grants annually to outstanding post-doctoral candidates who are investigating the causes, prevention, and treatment of child and adolescent ADHD and depression, and access to mental health care. The Fellowship supports two-year research projects that could lead to federal funding and other national research awards. The Foundation wants this research to produce direct and tangible benefits to children and their families, while supporting promising young scientists in building their careers.

The Klingenstein Third Generation Foundation has become an important supporter of child mental health, offering opportunities for promising young investigators to conduct research that often leads to federal funding. Recent initiatives encourage the development of innovative programs to improve access to care, recognizing the critical role of families and the special challenges faced by the most vulnerable populations.
