The Fellows Award supports the best and brightest early career scientists and clinicians as they establish their independence. We seek to fund a diverse portfolio, including across basic, social and clinical aspects of mental health. We support researchers around the world who are asking challenging questions that will contribute to transformative advances in mental health research. Research can be based in the laboratory, clinic or field, and may involve experimental, clinical, theoretical, social science or medical humanities approaches. It must be relevant to the cause, treatment or prevention of mental illness.

The MQ Fellows Award is designed to support early career researchers investigating questions that will ultimately improve the quality of life for people affected by mental illness. This is a highly competitive Award and as such, we are looking for applicants who have made an outstanding start to their research career as demonstrated by their research results, publications and career track record to date. In supporting early career investigators, MQ aims to complement ongoing efforts to nurture the academic research leaders of tomorrow. MQ Awardees will be establishing their independence, and so at a stage where their career is committed to mental health research.
