RWJF seeks research award applications
March 02, 2015
. — The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is seeking applications, due March 18, for the 2015 Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Program.
RWJF created the program, named after the first African-American to chair a department at Harvard University's medical school, to help increase the number of underrepresented minorities on medical faculties.
The program offers four-year postdoctoral research awards to increase the number of faculty from historically disadvantaged backgrounds who can achieve senior rank in academic medicine and dentistry, and who will encourage and foster the development of succeeding classes of such dentists and physicians.
The program will fund up to 10 four-year awards. Scholars will received an annual stipend of up to $75,000 each, complemented by a $30,000 annual grant to support research activities.
