2022 Schaefer Research Scholars Program Awards
The Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons (VP&S) is pleased to announce the 2022 Schaefer Research Scholars Program Awards. The Awards, made possible through a bequest from Dr. Ludwig Schaefer, are made annually to four research scientists who have distinguished themselves in human physiology, as broadly defined, and whose current work is of outstanding merit. The proposed research must have the potential to illuminate the field. Two awards are made to research scientists residing or working in North or South America, and two awards are made to research scientists residing or working outside North or South America. Each award consists of a $50,000 cash prize and up to $200,000 in direct research support.
Applications must include a cover sheet; a research proposal (one page); a research budget (not to exceed $200,000 in total direct costs) delineated by cost category (salary, fringe, supplies, etc.) for one year (7/1/2022–6/30/2023); a curriculum vitae (not to exceed 10 pages); and a page summarizing applicant’s research support. Internal candidates must obtain a nomination letter from their Department Chair. External candidates must present letters from the Dean or equivalent in their home institution as well as from the Columbia University Irving Medical Center collaborator, if applicable.
