Funding and prizes

The SSA’s academic funding schemes and prizes support addiction researchers throughout their careers. Project funding is given to support the dissemination of research findings or the convening of a group to review work in a particular area or geographic location to produce material for dissemination.

Many of these opportunities are available only to members or student associates: click here to find out more about becoming a member or a student associate of the SSA.
