Department of Pediatrics Endowed Fellowships

The Department of Pediatrics leadership administers several endowments that support clinical fellows during their ACGME years. Availability varies from year to year and funding is awarded based on the quality of the research proposal and funding needs (clinical fellows who have >50% funding are not eligible). Invitations are sent to fellows on an annual basis with instructions on how to apply for this funding.
