Title Short Description Deadline
Next Gen Pregnancy Initiative Next Generation Pregnancy Initiative (NGPI) is designed to stimulate both creative individual scientists and multi-investigator teams to approach healthy and adverse pregnancy outcomes using creative basic and translational scientific research methods. The formation of new connections between reproductive scientists and investigators who are involved in other areas is particularly encouraged. Postdoctoral fellows nearing their transition to independent investigator status through senior established investigators are encouraged to apply.  Each award will provide  $500,000 over a four-year period.  Public or private non-profit organizations in the United States and Canada, including degree-granting academic institutions, research institutes and teaching hospitals, are eligible to apply.

Independence Awards

Simon's Foundation

The Independence Award programs are aimed at Ph.D. and/or M.D.-holding scientists from diverse and/or historically underrepresented groups in science who are currently in a non-independent, mentored training position at an institution within or outside the U.S. and who will be actively seeking and applying to tenure-track faculty positions in the next academic job search cycle. Independence Fellows are expected to apply, secure and transition to a tenure-track faculty position at a research institution within or outside the U.S. within 24 months of their start in the programs. U.S. citizenship or permanent resident status is not required. January 10, 2024
