Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA investigators for mental health-related research projects. The purpose of the program is to support the work of early-career investigators. Projects should advance the understanding and awareness of substance use disorders, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia.

The program is designed to support clinical and basic research in therapeutic areas that are of interest to Alkermes, focusing on central nervous system disorders. In the future, other therapeutic areas may be considered.

For each area of interest, applications are invited on:

  • Preclinical, clinical, translational and epidemiological research
  • Research on treatment and patient-centered outcomes
  • Clinical and health economic outcomes using real-world data
  • Outcomes research supporting continuity of care utilizing telehealth or other technology-based approaches
  • Please note that therapeutic treatment studies using an Alkermes product will require additional review by Alkermes.

    Research projects should yield results that merit submission as abstracts to scientific meetings and, subsequently, publication in peer-reviewed journals.

      Funds may be used for:

        • Personnel necessary to complete the research project.
        • Funding for hours of work, which are specified in the research project.
        • Supplies and consumables necessary to fulfill the research project’s aims.
        • Travel to a scientific meeting for presentation of data from the research project may be
          included. This may be up to $1,500.
        • Overhead costs.
          • Additional documentation is required for overhead costs greater than 30% for clinical
            projects and greater than 50% for non-clinical projects.
