Culpeper Funds Medical Scholars
The Charles E. Culpeper Foundation Scholarships in Medical Science provide financial support for the career development of young academic physicians. Any accredited U.S. medical school can apply for up to three years of funding, in the name of a desired candidate, for awards of up to $100,000 per year. Three awards are scheduled for funding this year.
Parameters for research topics are wide; anything that has relevance to human health is acceptable. However, the physician must have received his or her M.D. in 1982 or later from a U.S. school. Awardees will receive full-time faculty positions, and will spend 75 percent of their time working on the research program.
Applications are due August 15. Selection will be announced by January 15, 1991, and funds will be available July 1.
