Q: I am wondering if I would be eligible to apply for this award if I am within 12 months of fellowship completion (2 years of training after medical residency), or is the award strictly for those who are within 12 months of residency?
A: For this program, only residency is being considered for eligibility. Therefore, unfortunately, you would not be eligible since you completed your residence more than 12 months prior to application submission. You may wish to consider other funding opportunities, such as the NIH K-Awards (http://grants.nih.gov/training/careerdevelopmentawards.htm).
