The call for proposals has been released for the Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Program (AMFDP). The deadline for application is March 15, 2017.
Supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation—and a desire to build a Culture of Health in America—the Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development program acts on the belief that an ever-changing health care landscape requires capable, diverse leadership. Applications are now open and due March 15, 2017.
This program works to increase diversity among medical, nursing, and dentistry faculty. Up to 10 selected program scholars are eligible for:
A four-year postdoctoral award of up to $420,000
An annual stipend of $75,000
An annual grant of $30,000 to support research
Additional awards available through partnership organizations
We are seeking applicants from “historically disadvantaged backgrounds,” which refers to challenges individuals may have faced because of their race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, physical, learning or other disability, or who are first-generation college graduates. We also strongly encourage those who meet these criteria and are in the nursing and dentistry fields to apply. Please consider applying, or spread the word among your networks!
Here’s how to get started:
Step One: Visit www.amfdp.org for more information on the program and application process.
Step Two: Register with RWJF at my.rwjf.org and apply at www.rwjf.org/cfp/mfd17.
Step Three: Please note that a hard copy must also be sent to the National Program Office by March 16, 2017.
We hope you’ll consider learning more about this unique leadership opportunity that pays you to lead in your field and support the next generation of diverse leaders.
