(April 28, 2006)--UTSA's South Texas Initiative for Mental Health Research (STIMHR) is accepting applications for its annual Summer Faculty Research Awards Program from UTSA faculty interested in mental-health research.

The primary purpose of the award program is to help faculty develop competitive grant proposals to advance their research programs. Three research awards are made each summer.

The awards provide a summer salary for one month and one course release in the fall semester. At the end of the fall semester, each award recipient must submit a grant proposal of at least $50,000 per year.

Preference for the awards will be given to tenure-track assistant and associate professors who are members of ethnic minorities pursing mental-health research.

Applications should specify the nature of the mental-health research activity, the pertinence of the research to the Hispanic population in South Texas, how the research will bolster the faculty member's research capability in the mental-health field, and the nature and focus of the extramural funding that will be pursued to continue the research.

Applications are limited to five double-spaced pages of narrative and must be accompanied by a current vita.

Applications for the 2006 STIMHR Summer Faculty Research Awards Program are due at 5 p.m., Friday, May 12.

Six copies of the application should be sent via U.S. mail to Raymond Garza, STIMHR, HSS 4.03.16, The University of Texas at San Antonio, One UTSA Circle, San Antonio, Texas, 78249.

STIMHR is in its second year of funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). NIH supports UTSA's multi-faceted research infrastructure development program with a focus on mental-health issues in South Texas.
