NIH Director's Early Independence Award Program

Preliminary applications are now being accepted by the Executive Committee on Research (ECOR) for the NIH Director’s Early Independence Awards.
 
What are they?
The NIH Director’s Early Independence Award Program supports exceptional investigators who wish to pursue independent research directly after completion of their terminal doctoral/research degree or clinical residency, thereby forgoing the traditional post-doctoral training period and accelerating their entry into an independent research career.
 
MGH is eligible to nominate two candidates to apply to NIH for this award. 
 
When is the deadline?   
MGH internal preliminary applications: July 10, 2017 – 5:00 PM
