The call for proposals has been released for the Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Program (AMFDP). The deadline for application is March 15, 2016.
This program is an incredible opportunity for a young faculty member from a historically disadvantaged background who is dedicated to a career in research. Scholars will receive an annual stipend of up to $75,000 each, complemented by a $30,000 annual grant toward support of research activities. The selection process is a rigorous one so it is important that these individuals are well prepared to embark on a research career. The program plans to fund up to 10 four-year awards up to $420,000 each in this grant cycle.
As part of RWJF’s ongoing efforts to increase diversity in health and health care, the AMFDP offers four-year postdoctoral research awards to increase the number of faculty from historically disadvantaged backgrounds who 1) can achieve senior rank in academic medicine, dentistry, and nursing and 2) who will encourage and foster the development of succeeding classes of such physicians, dentists, and nurses.
