Frank W. Putnam Trauma Research Scholars


The Board of Directors of the International Society of Traumatic Stress Studies has established the Frank W. Putnam Trauma Research Scholars Program.  The Scholars are named in honor of Dr. Frank W. Putnam, who is being recognized for his outstanding contributions to the field of traumatic stress research, service to children and families around the world, and decades of mentorship and service to the society.  The Frank W. Putnam Trauma Research Scholars will be selected from student members each year who submit proposals judged to have the potential to make the greatest contribution to the field of traumatic stress. ISTSS Corresponding members who have confirmed they are students are eligible for this award. Each student will be awarded $1000. Previously the student research grant program, the Frank W. Putnam Research Scholars Program was endowed by anonymous donors identified as the friends and colleagues of Dr. Putnam.


Applicants must submit the application and supporting materials in one inclusive email to Erika Wolf, Student Research Grant Committee Chair.

Applications and supporting materials must be received by May 30, 2019, in order to be reviewed. No late proposals will be accepted. Announcement of award recipients will be made at the ISTSS 35th Annual Meeting in November.
