ACBS Grants Committee Needs Volunteers

What is the ACBS Grants Committee?

The aim of the ACBS Grants Committee is similar to a scientific journal board. The committee is comprised of a group of reviewers with diverse research expertise and a standing committee. The Grants Committee makes the final decisions about funding Research Development Grant applications.

The ACBS Research Development Grants provide financial support for research that advances the field of Contextual Behavioral Science. The purpose of these grants is to provide financial support for high quality, innovative original research projects in CBS.

ACBS Grants Committee needs volunteers to review Research Development Grant applications

The role of the reviewer is to evaluate and rate a particular grant application based on set criteria. Applications are especially encouraged from individuals, students, and institutions who have difficulty obtaining funds and/or from developing countries. Each application is evaluated by two reviewers. The review of each application requires approximately 30 minutes.
The committee needs volunteer reviewers with these areas of expertise:

- Experimental Research
- Clinical Research
- Behavior Medicine
- Single Subject Design
- Addiction
- Pain
- Depression
- Anxiety
- Life Style
- Prevention
- Children/Adolescents
- Prosocial
- Stigma

Please note the Grant Call will be from September 1 - October 15, so reviewers will be contacted to review during the final two weeks of October. Since applications vary from year to year, not every reviewer’s particular specialty area may be needed for a given year.

Please indicate your interest to register for the Grants Committee by June 10, 2017.
