The Helen Hay Whitney Foundation supports early postdoctoral research training in all basic biomedical sciences. To attain its ultimate goal of increasing the number of imaginative, well-trained and dedicated medical scientists, the Foundation grants financial support of sufficient duration to help further the careers of young men and women engaged in biological or medical research.
Candidates who hold, or are in the final stages of obtaining a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent degree and are seeking beginning postdoctoral training in basic biomedical research are eligible to apply for a fellowship. The Foundation accepts applications from candidates who have no more than TWO years of postdoctoral research experience at the time of the deadline for submitting the application (June 15, 2021), and who have received a Ph.D. (or D.Phil. or equivalent) degree no more than THREE years before the deadline, or an M.D. degree no more than FOUR years before the deadline.
