We have a breadth of talented young scientists who require the resources to pursue innovative research focused on the treatment of disease. This work will build the credentials they need to secure long-term financial support for their research from private foundations and the National Institutes of Health.

Emerging Scholar funding typically involves a $150,000 commitment, which is spread equally over three years. During that time, donors receive biannual reports from their Emerging Scholar about the research they are supporting, as well as an opportunity to meet with their Emerging Scholar to learn first-hand the impact their gift has made in the battle against disease.

Support for the Emerging Scholars Program also may be made as an endowment. A gift of $1 million allows for the establishment of a permanent, named Emerging Scholars Fund, which can support early-career scientists working in a designated field of medicine. This allows a donor’s commitment to medical research to live on in perpetuity.
