Short-Term Pilot Awards are for post-doctoral clinician-scientists in training at ITM institutes, such as residents, fellows and other trainees whose mentors do not have financial support for the specific projects the applicants are trying to undertake.
Submissions are accepted and and awards of up to $5,000 are made on a rolling basis. The ITM has awarded more than $117,000 in Short-Term Pilot Awards since 2007 to more than 18 post-doctoral clinician-scientists.
Applicants must provide information on why a mentor is unable to provide financial support for the project.
Successful applicants are expected to be at the University of Chicago to complete their awarded project.
The next round of applications will open in Oct. 2021. Sign up for the ITM newsletter to stay up to date on award cycles and deadlines.
