To qualify for an award investigators must hold the Ph.D. and/or M.D. degrees, and have completed all research training, including post-doctoral training.
The award of $150,000 is payable over a three-year period. It may be used for salary support, research assistants, equipment, or for any other purpose which promotes the scientific activities of the Klingenstein Fellow.
- U.S. citizenship is not a requirement, but it is expected that candidates will be permanent residents of the U.S. and that their research will be carried out in U.S. institutions.
- Holding an award from another foundation concurrently with a Klingenstein award requires the approval of the Advisory Committee.
- The candidate should be an independent investigator, holding a tenure track academic rank (but not yet tenured) in a university or medical school, or the equivalent standing in a research institute or medical center.
