Both inside and outside the United States (ALL WORLD COUNTRIES)
Early Career Awards – Thrasher Research Fund
The Fund recognizes that young investigators may find it difficult to remain in pediatric research because of a lack of funding. Therefore, the purpose of this program is to encourage the development of medical research in child health by awarding small grants to new researchers, helping them gain a foothold in this important area. The goal is to fund applicants who will go on to be independent investigators.
Opportunity Focus Areas:
- Medical research.
ALL WORLD COUNTRIES.
1 to 2 years.
Those eligible to apply include:
1. Physicians who are in a residency/fellowship training program, or who completed that program no more than one year before the date of submission of the Concept Paper.
2. Post-doctoral researchers who received the doctoral level degree no more than three years prior to the date of submission of the Concept Paper.
3. Each project needs to be under the guidance of a mentor. The qualifications and experience of the mentor will be considered in the evaluation of the application. A mentor may have only one Thrasher Research Fund Early Career Awardee at a time.
4. There are no restrictions with regard to citizenship. The Fund is open to applications from institutions both inside and outside the United States.
Note: A new investigator who holds a National Institutes of Health (NIH) K award (including a K12 award) or a Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) is not eligible to apply.
The grant amount is based on the actual budgetary needs of the project, with a maximum of $25,000 indirect costs for the entire grant. Indirect costs of no more than 7% of direct costs will be paid on Early Career Award Program grants.
Up to $12,500 in a total of the proposed budget may be used for salary (including fringe) of the new researcher. Funds not needed for salary are to be used for research supplies or other research-related expenses.
The cost of attending one conference is allowed for the applicant to report findings resulting from Thrasher-supported research. Such travel costs may not exceed $2,000.
Requests for purchase of major equipment (items >$4,000) are discouraged and rarely funded.
