Grant, Award, Fellowship or Scholarship Opportunities

For individuals

McKnight Endowment for Neuroscience 2019 McKnight Scholars Awards for Emerging Investigators: The awards program was established to encourage emerging neuroscientists to focus on disorders of learning and memory. Preference is given to applicants working on problems that, if solved at the basic level, would have immediate and significant impact on clinically relevant issues. This year, up to six McKnight Scholars will be selected to receive three years of support. Each McKnight Scholar will receive $75,000 annually. Funds may be used in any way that facilitates the development of the scholar’s research program (but not for indirect costs). To be eligible, applicants must hold an MD, PhD, or other advanced degree; have a record of meritorious research; be able to provide evidence of a commitment to a career in neuroscience; have an appointment with tenure-track status at a U.S.-based sponsoring institution to which the award can be paid; have no more than four years of experience in an independent/tenure-track faculty position (exceptions may be made for parental leave); and provide documentation that the sponsoring institution has government approval for the applicant to work in the U.S. For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see https://www.mcknight.org/programs/the-mcknight-endowment-fund-for-neuroscience/scholar-awards/

Marsha Rivkin Center for Ovarian Cancer Research Pilot Studies in Ovarian Cancer Research: The Pilot Study Program will provides funding for up to ten grants of $75,000 each to investigator-initiated projects in all areas of ovarian cancer research, as well as projects designed to analyze data from already funded clinical trials. Priority will be given to proposals that are innovative, multidisciplinary, likely to lead to the submission of grant applications for independently funded investigations, and have translational research potential. Investigators at all levels are encouraged to apply. For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see https://www.rivkin.org/research/grants/pilot-study-awards/
