Pew Scholars Program in the Biomedical Sciences
Oregon State University has been invited to nominate a candidate from our research faculty to the 2013 Pew Scholars Program in the Biomedical Sciences.
The Research Office, Incentive Programs is requesting letters of recommendation for a nominee to the 2013 Pew Scholars Program in the Biomedical Sciences.
Deadline to Submit a Letter of Recommendation: Tuesday, September 4, 2012 by 5:00 PM
The Pew Scholars Program supports assistant professors of outstanding promise in science relevant to the advancement of human health. The program makes grants to selected academic institutions to support the independent research of outstanding individuals who are in their first few years of their appointment at the assistant professor level. The award provides $240,000 in flexible support - $60,000 per year for a four-year period. The awarded funds may be used at the discretion of the Pew scholar, for personnel, equipment, supplies, or travel directly related to the Scholar's research and as to best advance his or her research and career. Not more than $10,000 of the annual award may be used for the scholar's salary (including benefits).
The Pew Scholars Program is open to nominees with a doctorate in biomedical sciences or medicine. As of November 1, 2012, nominees must hold full-time appointments at the rank of assistant professor or equivalent. On July 1, 2013, they must not have been in such an appointment for more than three years, whether or not such appointments were on a tenure track.
Invited institutions may nominate one candidate. In 2013, the Pew Charitable Trusts will name 22 Pew Scholars.
To put forward the best nominee at OSU, a review process will be put in place if more than one letter of recommendation for a nominee is submitted. The finalist will be asked to represent Oregon State University and to submit their application to the Pew Scholars Program by the application deadline of November 1, 2012.
