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 U.S. 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 or clinical practice. 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 working on institutional change, educational reform, or primarily theoretical research.

Institutional Eligibility: 1
Only one applicant from an institution will be considered; institutions are requested to have an internal screening and selection process. At a university with a law school, medical school, and school of arts and sciences, for example, only one candidate may submit a preliminary application.

This solicitation is limited to Texas A&M University and the proposals will need to be submitted by the Texas A&M University Research Administration (TAMU-RS).

Summary
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.
