As part of their evaluation, peer reviewers consider how well the fellowship will broaden the applicant’s research training and experience.

Eligible applicants must work at a US academic institution or eligible non-profit, be US citizens or permanent residents, and not have a faculty appointment (e.g., instructor, research assistant professor).
