Career development awards from foundations can provide much-needed funds to support your research and protected time. But how do you know which programs to apply for? Eligibility windows can be narrow, so how can you be sure to catch them? What are foundations looking for and how do you craft a compelling proposal? How do these programs differ from those of the NIH, and should you apply for both? Join us to get answers to these questions and more, as well as ask questions of former recipients of foundation grants. We will discuss general guidelines as well as specific programs including BWF CAMS, Doris Duke Physician-Scientist Fellowship and Clinical Scientist Development Award, Damon Runyon Clinical Investigator Program, and others.
