      About NARSAD Distinguished Investigator Grants

      One-year grants of $100,000 each are provided for established scientists pursuing particularly innovative project ideas. Distinguished Investigator Grants fund talented, established scientists with a record of outstanding research accomplishments. These research projects might provide new approaches to understanding or treating severe mental illness. If successful, the grants could result in later funding from other sources. These grants are among the most competitive in mental health research and demonstrate the power of investigator-initiated research to bring out new and creative ideas.

      The first NARSAD Distinguished Investigator Grants were awarded in 1988. Since then, we have awarded more than $39 million in Distinguished Investigator Grants.
