American Heart Association Scientific Development Award

The purpose of the American Heart Association Scientific Development Award is to support highly promising young scientists in their progress toward independence by encouraging and adequately funding research projects that serve to bridge the gap between completion of research training and readiness for successful competition as an independent investigator. Applications can be submitted for review in the final year of a postdoctoral research fellowship with the stipulation that the investigator have a full-time faculty appointment at the time of activation. The award provides $65,000 per year for a maximum of 4-years. The intramural programs at NIH can nominate up to seven applicants each year. Visit the AHA website for more details.
