Awards & Grants
ECOR has a major internal grants and awards program, virtually a mini-foundation, which annually reviews nearly 800 applications from MGH investigators and fellows, and awards approximately 150 internal grants.
ECOR launched a major grants program in 2006 to provide interim/bridge support to faculty whose NIH or other federal funding is delayed or otherwise interrupted.
ECOR also awards the Martin Prize, the Howard Goodman Award, the Claflin Awards, the MGH Physician-Scientist Development Award through the Center for Diversity and Inclusion (formerly the Multi-Cultural Affairs Office), and the Tosteson and Fund for Medical Discovery post-doc fellowship awards.
In January 2011, ECOR launched the MGH Research Scholars Program, a major initiative to award research support to outstanding faculty in the MGH research community in support of innovative, cutting-edge research. 36 Scholars have been appointed so far, each receiving research funding of $100,000 a year for 5 years.
