Emerging Leader Awards

Three-year academic grants totaling $750,000

Applicant must be 3-8 years from the start of an independent faculty research appointment as of December 31, 2019 (i.e., the official start date of the appointment must fall within the calendar years 2011-2016). Exceptions due to prolonged medical or family leave will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Projects appropriate for this award must be centered on evidence-based laboratory, data and medical science.

This award is not intended to be the main source of funding for the applicant’s laboratory. Applicants must have multi-year independent funding that sustains the central studies of the laboratory (e.g., one or two grants such as NIH/R01, NSF/CAREER, or equivalently substantial multi-year awards). Individual eligibility will be determined during the LOI review stage.

LOI Deadline: Friday, May 10th, 5PM ET
