This year, the award is sponsored by the Society for Health Psychology of the American Psychological Association (SfHP), the International Society of Behavioral Medicine (ISBM), the American Psychosomatic Society (APS), the Society of Behavioral Medicine (SBM), and the International Behavioural Trials Network (IBTN).

The purpose of the award is to facilitate a minimum of one week visit to an international laboratory or research group under the guidance of an identified international mentor. The proposed visit will be based on aims to pursue a specific research project or a specific program development project in the areas of health research, clinical behavioral health, or health promotion.
