The Hanna H. Gray Fellows Program seeks to increase diversity in the biomedical research community by recruitment and retention of individuals from groups underrepresented in the life sciences. Through their successful careers as academic scientists, Hanna H. Gray Fellows will move science forward and inspire the next generation of scientists from America’s diverse talent pool. The Institute will select and support up to 15 Fellows in this first competition, which is now open for applications.
Fellows will receive funding for their postdoctoral training and, if eligible, in their early career years as independent faculty. The program includes opportunities for career development, including mentoring and active involvement in the HHMI scientific community.
Fellows will receive a non-renewable grant of $80,000 annually for up to four years of postdoctoral training support followed by a non-renewable grant of $270,000 annually for up to four years of the faculty phase, if program criteria are met. Application due date is February 15, 2017 at 3 p.m. ET.
