The Greenwall Foundation Faculty Scholars Program in bioethics provides support for assistant or associate faculty members holding at least a 60% appointment at a university or non profit research institute in the U.S. and whose research has the potential to impact public policy, biomedical research, or clinical practice in the field of bioethics. The award supports 50% of a scholars salary plus benefits for three years, up to 1.5% times the NIH salary cap, with 10% institutional costs for the salary and benefits. In addition, $5,000 is provided each year for limited project support and travel (no indirect costs are provided for these items).
