Searle Scholars Program
Applications to the program must be submitted through invited institutions only, and not by individual candidates. Candidates should have begun their first appointment as an independent investigator at the assistant professor level on or after July 1, 2010. The appointment must be a tenure-track position (or its nearest equivalent) in the FAS or HMS.
On-line application forms and instructions for the year 2011 awards probably will be available in early-June. Potential applicants should obtain the on-line application passwords from the appropriate administrative office at their institution. Applications are to be submitted by the institution and not by individual candidates.
The Searle Scholars Program makes grants to selected academic institutions to support the independent research of outstanding young scientists who have recently joined the tenure-track faculty. Normally, the program makes 15 new grants each year.
