Congratulations to our 2022 Scholar and Research Trainee award recipients.
As a responsible and responsive funder, we are listening to our health research community. We are hearing from some of our Scholar and Research Trainee applicants that challenges posed by the COVID-19 situation are impacting their abilities to complete their applications by the deadline. In response, we are extending our current competition deadlines by four weeks for these awards:
The full application deadline is now February 28, 2022.
The full application deadline is now March 14, 2022.
We anticipate that the awards will be announced this summer, and maintain their original award start dates of July 1, 2022 for Scholar and September 1, 2022 for Research Trainee.
We are committed to supporting the research community as we continue to work through these challenging times.
