JHU Catalyst and Discovery Awards

We encourage you to submit proposals for the 2017 Johns Hopkins University Catalyst and Discovery Awards.

The Catalyst Awards are for early-career faculty across the university who are undertaking exceptional research or creative endeavors. The awards of up to $75,000 will help individuals launch their promising careers during the crucial years when startup funds are depleted and external funding or other support may be elusive. They are available to full-time faculty members appointed to a faculty position within no less than three years and no more than 10 years of the deadline.

The Discovery Awards focus on cross-university, faculty-led research and discovery. These awards of up to $150,000 are intended to spark new interactions among faculty from across the university. A number of the awards are reserved for faculty teams that will use the funds to get started while they seek an externally funded large-scale grant or cooperative agreement.

Details and application materials are on the JHU Office of Research website. The application deadline is Friday, March 31.
