Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) Awards

Each year at its annual meeting, the Association of American Medical Colleges presents its major awards honoring individuals and programs making significant contributions to our community in the fields of medical education, research, and community service. In 2000, three additional Herbert W. Nickens awards were established.

Specific information about each award and their respective nomination requirements is available by accessing the pages linked at AAMC Grants and Awards.


Executive Committee on Research (ECOR)

ECOR has a major internal grants program, virtually a mini-foundation, which annually reviews nearly 800 applications from MGH investigators and fellows, and awards approximately 150 internal grants.

ECOR launched a major grant program in 2006 to provide interim/bridge support to faculty whose NIH or other federal funding is delayed or otherwise interrupted.

Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Whether the challenge is low-yield crops in Africa or low graduation rates in Los Angeles, they listen and learn so they identify pressing problems that get too little attention. Then they consider whether they can make a meaningful difference with their influence and their investments, whether it is a grant or a contract.

Radcliffe Fellowship Opportunities

Typical fellows (outside the arts) are faculty, and fellowship stipends are targeted to complement sabbatical support from fellows' home institutions. Harvard faculty may also apply, and recent classes have included 8-10 Harvard junior and senior faculty. We aim for a class diverse in many dimensions - career stage (both senior and junior faculty), field, nationality, as well as gender. In the sciences, we also have been encouraging participation by researchers in national or industry labs, though as with academics, we expect home institutions to provide partial support. We do not ordinarily provide postdoctoral fellowships for various reasons, including the large number of alternative sources of funding for such positions.
