CCHE would like to share the 2017 Call for Applications for the Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Program. The application site is scheduled to go live at 9am today (Feb. 1) ~
The Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Program of The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, formerly known as the Minority Medical Faculty Development Program, was created to increase the number of faculty from historically disadvantaged backgrounds who can achieve senior rank in academic medicine, dentistry, or nursing and who will encourage and foster the development of succeeding classes of such physicians, dentists, and nurse-scientists. Four-year postdoctoral research awards are offered to historically disadvantaged physicians, dentists, and nurses who are committed to developing careers in academic medicine and to serving as role models for students and faculty of similar background.
RWFJ will fund up to 10 four-year awards of up to $420,000 each in this grant cycle. Amos Scholars will receive an annual stipend of up to $75,000 each, complemented by a $30,000 annual grant toward support of research activities.
