About The Award

The Burroughs Wellcome Fund announces a three-day workshop for early career administrators whose work focuses on the career development of PhD scientists. 

The workshop will focus on developing participants’ research evaluation skills while creating new career-focused interventions or activities for use at the participants’ home institutions. In the year following the workshop, participants will each develop their research and evaluation networks, run their project with support from a small grant from the Burroughs Wellcome Fund, submit their results for presentation at a national meeting, and produce a rigorously prepared manuscript for publication.

Ten seats are available. Transportation, housing, and most meals will be covered by the Burroughs Wellcome Fund. 

The application process uses the Burroughs Wellcome Fund’s grant submission system. Note that this application must have a signature from your sponsored program office.
