Fellows Funding Sources

Department of Pediatrics Endowed Fellowships

The Department of Pediatrics leadership administers several endowments that support clinical fellows during their ACGME years. Availability varies from year to year and funding is awarded based on the quality of the research proposal and funding needs (clinical fellows who have >50% funding are not eligible). Invitations are sent to fellows on an annual basis with instructions on how to apply for this funding.

Pediatric Research Fund Awards

Administered semi-annually, this program supports clinical and translational research in child health under four categories: Pilot Early-Career, New Ideas for mid to senior investigators, Bridge Funding and Fellow and Postdoctoral Support. Total award up to $35,000.

Child Health Research Institute Fellowships

This annual program supports research fellows in any pediatric or surgical clinical subspecialty, including neurology, radiology, anesthesiology and psychiatry. Total awards of up to $100,000 per year and up to two years of funding.

Child Health Research Institute (CHRI) Fellowships, as well as Pediatric Research Fund awards, are administered by Spectrum Child Health. Information about these funding opportunities, including relevant deadlines, can be found at:
