Summary Of Postdoctoral Fellowship:

The Young Investigator Award, initiated in 1985, is CTF’s longest running award program, and provides two-year salary support to early career NF researchers, such as senior doctoral students and post-doctoral researchers, to help them get established as independent NF investigators. Since its inception several YIAs have made groundbreaking research findings and notable publications through this program, and many have advanced to become leaders in the NF research and clinical communities. The main function of the YIA program has been to serve as a ‘seeding mechanism’ for researchers to secure larger grants, such as from the NIH and CDMRP NFRP.

Fellowship Amount:

Predoctoral awards provide a flat rate of $32,000 of stipend support for each of TWO years (total two-year budget $64,000, including 10% Indirect costs).
