Apply Now for the 2010 Joint Research Awards

The IDSA Education and Research Foundation (ERF)/National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID) Joint Research Awards provide support for promising young researchers who may not otherwise find funding.  Applications are now being accepted for the 2010 awards.  Applicants and their sponsors must be members of IDSA unless otherwise noted.

The application deadline is Feb. 12.

IDSA members-in-training are encouraged to apply for the following: 

  • Merle A. Sande/Pfizer Fellowship Award in International Infectious Diseases 
    sponsored by Pfizer Inc.
    • This award is intended to encourage young physicians interested in international medicine.  Note:  The applicant's sponsor must be from a resource-limited country and does not necessarily have to be an IDSA member.

Junior faculty members (those who are not more than four years out of a training program) are encouraged to apply for the following:

  • Association of Specialty Professors – IDSA Young Investigator Award in Geriatrics 
    sponsored by the Atlantic Philanthropies Inc. and the John A. Hartford Foundation

  • Astellas Young Investigator Awards 
    sponsored by the Astellas USA Foundation
    • These awards provide funding to young investigators who have demonstrated outstanding research in any area of current interest in the field of infectious diseases.
