Research Grant Program
The Endocrine Fellows Foundation conducts a very successful program by which it provides support to first or second year fellows engaged in significant research. EFF has received over 1,000 applications since the program’s inception and over 300 grants, totaling more than $2 million, have been awarded. Applications are reviewed twice yearly in the spring and fall. The next research grants will be awarded in November 2014. All interested fellows are encouraged to submit an application no later than September 15, 2014.
The EFF wants to acknowledge the help of our expert reviewers without whom this program could not be a success.
Two EFF Research Grants are Available
Marilyn Fishman Grant for Diabetes Research
This research grant, named in honor of EFF’s long-time executive director, is funded through an unconditional educational grant from the partnership of Bristol-Myers Squibb and AstraZeneca International. This grant is limited to studies involving metabolism, obesity and Type 2 diabetes (both clinical and basic research). EFF awards up to four research grants of $7,500.00 each. Successful grantees are expected to present their research at an EFF scientific diabetes forum for fellows.
The EFF Endocrine Research Grant
Our traditional grant, the EFF grant in general endocrinology is awarded twice a year and is for general endocrine topics including, but not limited to, thyroid, bone, adrenal, pituitary, growth, and reproductive disorders. Up to four grants can be awarded in 2014 at $7,500.00 each.
