Spring Applications for Research Grant
Applications Due March 6, 2020 at 11:59 PM ET
The applicant must hold a M.D. and have completed residency training. Further, the applicant must have at least ONE (1) full year remaining. This means you should not complete your fellowship prior to January 2021. M.D.-Ph.D. applicants should have no more than two years post- doctorate experience.
The applicant must be sponsored by a full-time faculty member of a North American university, medical school, or research institution, and both the applicant and the sponsor must be recommended by the chairperson of the department in which the proposed research is to be undertaken.
The applicant’s institution, the sponsor, and the applicant will be jointly responsible for the accuracy and validity of the information contained in the application.
Past recipients of an Endocrine Fellows Foundation grant award are eligible to apply.
Each grant will be a one-time award and terms and conditions will depend on the nature of the award. Fellow grants are for a one year time frame, Young Investigator grants are for two years. The Endocrine Fellows Foundation will not fund indirect research costs (i.e., salaries of any kind, computers, software, equipment, faculty support, etc.) or tuition support for degree enhancement.
Grant recipients will be required to make regular progress reports to the Board of Directors of the Endocrine Fellows Foundation. The first such report for fellows will be due six months from the starting date of the research project, and the final report due at the end of twelve months. Young Investigators will be required to complete a one year progress report and a two year final report. ANY changes to the proposed research must be approved by the Endocrine Fellows Foundation Board of Directors.
Endocrine Fellows Foundation research grants will be awarded to the institution on behalf of the fellow. The institution will then administer the funds.
The Endocrine Fellows Foundation will supply critique comments if the research proposal is not accepted. Applicants are welcome, if not funded the first time, to resubmit their grant for possible funding in the next cycle.
Publications, including abstracts of presentations at scientific meetings, resulting from a project supported by an Endocrine Fellows Foundation research grant must carry the following acknowledgment: “Funding for this project was received from the Endocrine Fellows Foundation.”
Endocrine Fellows Foundation research grant recipients must agree to present the results of their research at a future designated Endocrine Fellows Foundation event. If an appearance at a forum or educational session is requested, a stipend towards travel and hotel may be provided.
