The award cycle for the SRSF CDA is now closed.
The SRS Foundation recognizes the challenges of transitioning from post-doctoral training to independent research funding. The goal of these mentored awards is to invest in promising early career researchers and assist with their transition into independence as junior investigators. The awards will be funded up to $50,000. The awards will provide one year of support for two (2) or more SRS Members. Recipients are expected to apply for a mentored or independent federal research award within the funding period. A second year of funding is not available in this award cycle.
The awards are intended to further our understanding of sleep and sleep disorders. Submitted proposals will need to identify themselves as being in one of the following topic areas:
