The William F. Milton Fund makes research monies available to faculty members of the University for studies of a medical, geographical, historical, or scientific nature.
The fund supports research either in the interests of promoting the physical and material welfare of the human race, or of investigating and determining the value and importance of a discovery or invention. The $35,000 award is given between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2002.
Applicants must be members of the University with voting privileges in their respective faculties and must not have received Milton Fund support in the past five years. Preference is given to new and original projects, especially independent work of recently appointed young faculty members.
Formal applications are available at Sponsored Programs Administration, Harvard Medical School, 25 Shattuck St., Building A, Suite 509, Boston, MA 02115. The application deadline is Nov. 13.
