Winter is here in the Research Triangle Park, but the Fund is gearing up for a new slate of grant programs coming your way in 2018. A few programs are open and accepting applications:
- Collaborative Research Travel Grants | Deadline: Feb. 1, 2018
- Career Guidance for Trainees | Deadline: March 6, 2018
- Student STEM Enrichment Program | Deadline: April 18, 2018
Stay tuned as more programs will be announced in the spring by signing up for our newsletter, FOCUS.
As summer comes to a close at the Burroughs Wellcome Fund, there are still a few deadlines to consider. See bwfund.org for complete details. The Preterm Birth Initiative is now open and ready to accept applications.
- Career Awards at the Scientific Interface - Deadline: Sept. 6
- Career Awards for Science and Mathematics Teachers - Deadline: Sept. 15
- Career Awards for Medical Scientists - Deadline: Oct. 3
- Preterm Birth Initiative - Deadline: Dec. 1.
In this issue of FOCUS, read about BWF researchers studying the Zika virus, listen to an audiocast with Pardis Sabeti, and learn about how N.C. teacher Andi Webb travels the world for education.
We, at the Fund, hope you have a wonderful rest of the summer.
The Burroughs Wellcome Fund is gearing up for another award cycle, beginning with the Investigators in the Pathegenesis of Infectious Diseases (pre-proposal deadline: 7/15).
Other deadline for the grants cycles are:
- Career Awardes at the Scientific Interface: Pre-proposal September 6, 2016
- Career Awards for Science and Mathematics Teachers: September 15, 2016
- Career Awards for Medical Scientists: Deadline: October 1, 2016
As a reminder, these programs are now open nomination to researchers at degree-granting institutions in the United States or Canada. This, of course, does not apply to CASMT which is open to public school teachers in North Carolina.
Another important thing to note is that the awards are now open to temporary residents in the United States and Canada. Please check the program's eligibility for further details since the Fund has reduced citizenship restrictions.
We have also released our annual report and audited financial reports, which are available for download.
