Proposals are being accepted from full-time faculty of the College of Medicine for grants to be awarded from the College of Medicine Alumni Association with proceeds generated from the Evening of Excellence dinner fund. COMAA awards are intended to be an important resource for funding basic and clinical research projects of new and early-stage investigators in the College of Medicine. The guidelines are included with this notice.
The College of Medicine Research Fund was created with the proceeds from the first Evening of Excellence Alumni Research Dinner over 30 years ago. To date over $3.4 Million has been awarded. Successful applicants will be designated “College of Medicine Alumni Research Scholars.” Applications will be reviewed by a scientific panel whose composition will be based on the types of applications received. Awards generally fall within the $20,000 to $50,000 range ($50,000 maximum request).
