AGA-Bern Schwartz Family Fund Research Scholar Award in Pancreatic Cancer

Award Info:

This award provides $100,000 per year for three years (totaling $300,000) to early-career faculty (i.e., investigator, instructor, research associate or equivalent) working toward an independent career in digestive disease research.

Applicants for this award must hold an MD, PhD and/or equivalent degree (e.g., MBChB, MBBS, DO), and a full-time faculty or equivalent position at an institution in North America (U.S., Canada or Mexico) by the start date (i.e., July 2022) of this award.
Also, applicants must classify as “early career” according to the criteria provided by the sponsor. 


The objective of this AGA Research Foundation Research Scholar Award (RSA) is to support early-career investigators working toward independent and productive careers in pancreatic cancer research by ensuring that a major proportion of their time is protected for research (i.e., a minimum of 75 percent effort dedicated to the proposed project). The award will support junior faculty (not fellows) who have demonstrated exceptional promise and have some record of accomplishment in research.
