The fellows program is ideal for early career faculty intending to submit proposals to federal funding programs such as the U.S. Department of Defense Young Investigator Program, National Institutes of Health Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant awards (R21), National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development Program and U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agriculture and Food Research Initiative.
