SSCI Research Scholar Award

The Southern Society for Clinical Investigation (SSCI) invites you to submit a proposal for the "SSCI Research Scholar Award", which provides funding for physician-scientists with innovative research projects related to Internal Medicine and its subspecialties.

Application Deadline: October 1, 2018

Grant Recipient Announced: February 2019

Award Activation: March 1, 2019

Grant Amount: $25,000 plus 10% indirect costs

Overview

The goal of this new award is to support developing physician-scientists with innovative research projects of excellence related to Internal Medicine and its subspecialties. This grant-in-aid will provide supplemental funds for mentored career awards of senior post-doctoral fellows or junior faculty at the instructor or assistant professor level whose extramural application has been funded or recently received a highly meritorious score and is likely to be funded in the next 12 months. Mentored federal career development awards (e.g., K01, K08, K23 and VA-CDA) or non-federal career development awards (e.g., AHA Young Investigator Award) applications will be considered. The duration of the SSCI Research Scholar Award is one year. A specific requirement for this award is that the applicant’s primary mentor be a member of the SSCI in good standing. The successful award recipient will be known as the “SSCI Research Scholar” and will be required to attend the Southern Regional Meeting within one year of completing the award to present their research to the SSCI members and other attendees at this meeting.

Focus

All basic, clinical, and population research broadly related to Internal Medicine and its subspecialties.

Target Applicants

Proposals are encouraged from applicants who:

  • Post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty members (Instructor or Assistant Professor of Medicine) conducting research in an accredited institution.
  • Hold a MD, DO, MBBS or equivalent degree.
