 New Deadline for Applications: 3PM Friday, February 13, 2015

 Purpose of the Career Development Fellowships

The purpose is to provide transitional funding for Instructors and Assistant Professors to enhance research productivity during the early critical years of an academic research career. The awards will support resources for research including supplies, salary (PI and/or research assistant), or other requests, upon review, that will contribute to the individual’s academic career development.

 The Career Development Fellowships (13 awards)

Each of the Career Development Fellowships provides $50,000/year in direct costs for two years:

  • 9 awards are unrestricted and open to all junior faculty who meet eligibility guidelines

Those applying under the restricted category are also eligible for the unrestricted awards.

The awards are funded 75% by the hospital and 25% by the Division/Department. For the complete Call for Applications, as well as an Application Outline, FAQ, and details about cost-sharing, see links below:
