Each year more than 50 postdoctoral and faculty fellowships/grants are available to the Harvard medical community by invitation only. The private foundations that fund these grants permit a limited number of individuals to be nominated for these awards. (Individuals cannot apply for these directly, but must be nominated by the institution.) In order to choose candidates that will represent the Harvard medical community in the national competitions, an internal selection process is conducted by the Harvard Medical School (HMS) Faculty Fellowship Committee.

Updated information on the next cycle of invitational fellowships/grants will be available online beginning Feb. 13 at http://medapps.med.harvard.edu/fellowships/.

Additionally, hard copies of the “Red Book” are no longer distributed, however, the book’s information will be printable from the Web site. The application deadline in the office of the HMS Dean for Academic and Clinical Programs is April 10.
