Opportunity for USA and Canada faculty members to join a fellowship for biomedical research. Funding is intended to support a faculty member or group for a mini-sabbatical to begin and accelerate research. In addition to a cash grant, fellows will also receive funds for travel and lodging, professional development/meetings, as well as office space, computer access, meeting facilities, and other dry laboratory resources.
The Burroughs Wellcome Fund seeks to further enhance its activities as a convener and catalyst for discovery, creativity, and scientific impact by establishing the BWF Resident Faculty Scholar Grant Program. The Resident Faculty Scholar Grant Program will support a faculty member, or small group of faculty members, at institutions in the United States or Canada, to utilize BWF Headquarters as a site for mini-sabbaticals/project incubation allowing the dedicated protected time to initiate or accelerate their work as aligned with BWF priorities and goals.
The nature of the mini-sabbaticals/project incubation sessions will be quite flexible and would be envisioned to support work at the BWF Headquarters for two to six months.
Program Highlights Include:
BWF strongly encourages applications from women and underrepresented minorities, including Blacks or African Americans, Hispanics or Latinos, Native Americans, Alaskan Natives, or Native Hawaiians.
