Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics

http://greenwall.org/how-to-apply.php

 

Limited Submission Program (LSP): This funding opportunity and the Limited Submission Program (LSP) is open to all Texas A&M University faculty and principal investigators who meet the eligibility requirements. Texas A&M and The Texas A&M University System agencies jointly administer this process to select the proposal(s) that will be submitted to the sponsor in response to this solicitation.

 

Institutional Eligibility:  Up to two applicants from a university will be considered in each application cycle. Institutions are requested to have an internal screening and selection process. No more than one award per institution will be made in each Faculty Scholars grant cycle.

 

PI Eligibility:  Applicants must be junior faculty members holding at least a 60% appointment in a tenure series at a university or non-profit research institute in the United States. Priority will be given to applicants who have not yet been considered for tenure, who have not received a comparable career development award, and whose work will have an impact on public policy, biomedical research, or clinical practice.

 

Faculty Scholars will be selected on the basis of their achievements, the strength of their research project, their commitment to the field of bioethics, and support from their home institution. While the amount and quality of an applicant's research in bioethics will count favorably towards his/her application, outstanding candidates with less direct experience in bioethics will also be considered.

 

Within this group, priority will be given to applicants whose research addresses innovative and emerging topics. Lower priority will be given to applicants who are primarily carrying out institutional change, educational reform, or theoretical bioethics research.

 

The proposal will be prepared and submitted by Sponsored Research Services (SRS).

 

Proposal Limit: 2

 

Summary:  The Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics is a career development award to enable junior faculty members to carry out innovative bioethics research.  Each year around three Greenwall Faculty Scholars are selected to receive 50 percent salary support for three years to enable them to develop their research program.

 

The Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics supports research that goes beyond current work in bioethics to help resolve pressing ethical issues in clinical care, biomedical research, and public policy.

 

Scholars and Alumni/ae attend twice-yearly meetings, where they present their work in progress, receive feedback and mentoring from the Faculty Scholars Program Committee and other Scholars, and have the opportunity to develop collaborations with other researchers. The ongoing involvement of Alumni/ae with the Program provides them ongoing opportunities for professional development and feedback and engages them in mentoring of younger Scholars.  The Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program creates a community that enhances future bioethics research by Scholars and Alumni/ae.

 

The Faculty Scholars Program Committee provides oversight and direction for the program and is involved not only with selection of the Scholars but with mentoring and faculty development activities.
