The NIDA Mentored-Facilitated Training Award in Substance Use Disorders Science Dissemination, supported by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and sponsored by the Society for Adolescent Health & Medicine (SAHM), will offer $12,000 for support (including up to $2,000 for a mentor stipend). 
Completed applications are due by 11:00 p.m. CDT on Monday, November 5.
Accelerating the dissemination of Substance Use Disorder (SUD), particularly opioid use disorder (OUD) research findings and encouraging the implementation of evidence-based practices in health care settings is a priority for NIDA and represents the core mission of the NIDA CTN Dissemination Initiative. This initiative uses collaboration between expert clinicians, clinical researchers, experienced trainers, and NIDA staff to rapidly disseminate research findings from NIDA’s vast scientific portfolio to a variety of stakeholders, including policy-makers, program administrators and frontline prevention and treatment providers.
SAHM has partnered with NIDA to fund training awards to support the development of expertise in SUD, especially OUD, through completion of a mentor-supervised project focused on adoption and/or dissemination of SUD treatment research and the publication of the results. The NIDA Mentor-Facilitated Training Award goals are: 
  1. to promote and improve knowledge of evidence-based SUD treatment among health care providers 
  2. to promote the adoption of evidence-based approaches in medical settings
  3. to promote dissemination of substance use disorder research findings
  4. to facilitate the professional growth and development of future clinician leaders in the area of SUD management. 
This award cannot be used to conduct basic or clinical research studies or trials. Awardees are to develop and execute a plan designed to increase their knowledge of SUD and SUD treatment and complete a project aimed at improving the dissemination and/or adoption of SUD research findings. Secondary data analysis may be completed in pursuit of these aims, provided the project proposed is eligible for IRB exemption and has a dissemination/adoption focus. Applications proposing nonexempt research involving human subjects that must be reviewed by an IRB under the requirements of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) regulations at 45 CFR part 46 will not be accepted.
Full details, including how to apply can be found on the SAHM website
