The Johns Hopkins University 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 these 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 July 1, 2018.
The Johns Hopkins University Discovery Awards focus on cross-university, faculty-led research and discovery. We aim for these awards of up to $100,000 to spark new interactions among faculty from across the university. In addition, in-kind support will be available in the form of proposal writing assistance to generate extramural funding on a substantial scale, when appropriate.
Details and application materials are on the Research website. The Catalyst application deadline is Friday, March 16, and the Discovery application deadline is Friday, March 23.
Through these initiatives and others to come, we will continue to do all we can to lead the nation in supporting the potential of our early-career faculty and enabling interdisciplinary collaboration.
