HMS Foundation Funds

Funding Opportunities for Faculty and Fellows

Information on funding opportunities offered through the HMS Foundation Funds is now available

Each year several foundations invite HMS junior faculty members and postdocs to apply for their fellowships and grants, which serve as critical funding at the early stages of a research career. For awards that limit the number of applicants from Harvard, interested investigators must first apply for the HMS nomination through the HMS Foundation Funds, and a committee will select the final candidates to submit applications to the foundations. For some awards, MGH receives invitations to submit their own nominations. In this case, MGH faculty must first apply for the MGH nomination through ECOR and a committee at MGH will select the final MGH candidates to submit applications to the foundations. 

The following chart lists the HMS Foundation Funds that are currently available and the Institution that MGH faculty should apply through.
