Career Guidance for Trainees

FAQ Additional Questions

Are there examples of the type of project/proposal that BWF has supported?
A list of CGT funded proposals is available at www.bwfund.org. Because we receive many more good applications than we can support, this list should not be taken as representing “what BWF is looking for”.

If I have questions about a particular program guideline or trouble with the electronic application, whom do I contact for help?
Questions regarding whether the proposal falls within the scope of the program may be directed to the senior program officer, Victoria McGovern, Ph.D., 919-991-5112. For questions regarding electronic application issues, contact the program associate, Muno Sekhon by email or phone 919-991-5122.

Is the CGT award for individual investigators doing biomedical research projects?
No. The CGT award is an institutional award supporting demonstration projects that will model affordable approaches to improving trainees’ readiness for stable, fulfilling careers.

May previous awardees apply again?
Yes, individuals and institutions associated with successful proposals from the first round of CGT may be involved in proposals submitted in this round, but continuations or extensions of earlier-funded proposals will not be considered.

Will continuations or extensions of earlier-funded CGT programs be considered in this round of funding?
No. Continuations or extensions of earlier-funded proposals will not be considered in this round of CGT funding.
