Resident Training

The Training Residents in Psychiatry Scholarship (TRIPS) Program is designed to increase the number of psychiatry residents (PGY-II) entering post-residency research training fellowships. Learn more about TRIPS.

Grant Writing Training

Approximately every 2 years, SC MIRECC sponsors a Grant Writing Scholars program that provides 8-12 investigators with didactic training and individualized mentoring in developing applications for funding to VA Merit Review, VA HSR&D, the National Institutes of Health, or other agencies. Participants write and submit a draft proposal for national-level review. Learn more about Grant Writing Scholars.
