The award cycle for the 2014 SRSF Early Career Development Research Awards is now closed. The 2015 award cycle will be announced at a later date.
The SRS Foundation recognizes the challenges of transitioning from post-doctoral training to independent research funding. The goal of these mentored awards is to invest in promising early career researchers and assist with their transition into independence as junior investigators. These grants will be funded up to $75,000. The awards will provide one year of support for 2-4 individuals. Recipients are expected to apply for a mentored or independent federal research award within the funding period. In any year that this request for applications is posted, awardees may apply for a second year of funding, providing they have submitted an application for a federally funded research award.
The awards are intended to further our understanding of sleep and sleep disorders. All areas of and approaches to sleep research will be considered.
Applications must be submitted in English. Applying for the award involves submitting the following items via e-mail as an attached WORD file or PDF. Please use the attached form.
The overarching question assessed by the reviewers will be: Will this support enable the candidate to develop the skills, knowledge and/or preliminary data needed to apply for the mentored or independent federal research award outlined in the application?
The deadline for the receipt of the proposal is Thursday, September 25, 2014. All proposals must be submitted electronically to Laura Bentley at the SRSF National Office: firstname.lastname@example.org. The SRSF will notify applicants of their funding decision in mid-December 2014.
Please contact Laura Bentley at email@example.com or (630) 737-9700 with any questions.
