The Office of the Vice President for Research is honored to announce that the University of South Carolina has been invited to submit an application for the 2019 Pew Biomedical Scholars Award. USC was selected as one of only 177 institutions to participate in this prestigious program because of the scope of our university’s biomedical research portfolio.
The University of South Carolina can nominate one tenure-track assistant professor in the area of biomedical sciences who meets the eligibility criteria (not appointed before June 29, 2015) to compete for funding in the 2019 Pew Biomedical Scholars Program. The Pew Biomedical Scholars award is an annual program that provides $300,000 in flexible support for the selected recipient to use over four years ($75,000 per year) to conduct biomedical research.
Submit your pre-proposal application by 5:00 p.m. on May 21, 2018
USC may submit only one Pew Biomedical Scholars Program application per year. To ensure that USC’s biomedical researchers have the best possible chance at receiving funding through the program, the Office of the Vice President for Research will coordinate an internal selection process to choose the final USC applicant.
Eligible assistant professors must submit a pre-proposal application packet to Beth Herron at BHerron@mailbox.sc.edu by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, May 21, 2018.
The selected applicant will work with the Office of the Vice President for Research to complete and submit the final Pew Biomedical Scholars Program application on or before Friday, June 22, 2018.
