Letter from the Chairman
Dear Prospective Applicants:
Welcome to the HMS Foundation Funds website. Please review carefully the information presented here. The Foundation Funds Committee wants to ensure that you are made aware of these opportunities, and have the opportunity to be considered for any award for which you are eligible and interested. If a particular award interests you please discuss its appropriateness for your career path, your qualifications, proposal and application with your mentor or department head. If you have questions about the process, please do not hesitate to contact the Foundation Funds Office.
Like many of the faculty who serve on the Foundation Funds Committee, I first became involved as a Harvard nominee for one of the fellowship awards. We know first hand of the career impact these awards can provide, and simultaneously of the insecurities and uncertainties these array opportunities present. The Foundation Funds Committee continues to strive to enhance this resource, to improve our community outreach, and to refine the methods by which we evaluate our applicants. Please e-mail any suggestions you may have for the Program to Betty_Carbunari@hms.harvard.edu and she will be sure to call them to my attention.
I look forward to reviewing your proposals, and wish you the best in this endeavor.
Elazer Edelman, M.D., Ph.D.
