Limited Submission Announcement

The Dermatology Foundation's Research Awards Program provides career and research support in the form of career development awards (CDAs), fellowships, and grants. The CDAs provide the potential for three years of salary support for junior investigators in the early stages of their careers, (i.e., through the level of Assistant Professor). Fellowships provide annual salary stipends to individuals who are in earlier phases of their careers and are not intended for faculty members. Research grants provide seed money for a variety of dermatological research projects. A special program development grant is available to further the infrastructure of an existing department or division of dermatology.

Research funded by the Foundation must be conducted in the U.S. under the sponsorship of a division or department of dermatology. Applicant eligibility criteria and value of each award vary. Detailed descriptions of each program can be found in section III of the instruction guide.
