The American Society of Nephrology leads the fight to prevent, treat, and cure kidney diseases throughout the world by educating health professionals and scientists, advancing research and innovation, communicating new knowledge, and advocating for the highest quality care for patients.

To that end, the organization invites applications for its William and Sandra Bennett Clinical Scholars Program. Through the program, grants of up to $50,000 a year for up to two years will be awarded in support of proposals that examine any aspect of nephrology education and teaching, either pre-doctoral or postdoctoral.

Examples of proposed projects may include but are not limited to curricular reform, innovations in education, new education methods, evaluation of new assessment tools for competency-based learning and assessment, professional development, or professionalism. Grant recipients are expected to publish and disseminate project data at national meetings and credit KidneyCure for its support.

Recipients also are encouraged to complete a formal (e.g., master’s degree in medical education) or semi-formal (e.g., Stanford University School of Medicine’s Faculty Development Program for Clinical Teaching) educational program during the KidneyCure funded years.

To be eligible, applicants must hold an MD, DO, PhD, or the equivalent degree; have completed the clinical portion of their training program by the time of award activation; and must be a full-time faculty member within seven years of initial faculty appointment at the time of the award activation.

See the American Society of Nephrology website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.

The goal of the Ben J. Lipps Research Fellowship Program is to fund nephrology fellows to conduct original, meritorious research projects. This program will foster the training of fellows, under the direction of a sponsor, who are highly motivated to make contributions to the understanding of kidney biology and disease. This Fellowship serves to establish the beginnings of an independent career.

Fellows may submit a proposal that examines any aspect of the entire spectrum of kidney biology and disease. KidneyCure especially encourages applications from women and members of underrepresented minorities in medicine (as defined by AAMC).

The Ben J. Lipps Research Fellowship Program provides each nephrology fellow with $50,000 per year for up to two years, to begin on July 1 of the award year. Funds must be used only for salary support and fringe benefits. Funds cannot be used for project costs, travel expenses, or overhead costs. Recipients cannot hold another training grant or be included on an institutional training grant. Institutional support of the applicant sufficient to complete the project is permitted and expected.
