M Health Fairview

For the two-year award period, scholars will receive salary support for 50%-75% FTE up to a maximum of $90,000 per year (at 75% FTE) plus applicable fringe benefits (up to $32,400 per year), and $25,000 per year for research development support costs, such as supplies, research support, and travel. Scholars’ home departments must cover any salary or fringe benefits that exceeds these limits. If scholars choose to allocate the funds towards one mentor’s salary/fringe (up to $5,000), it would need to come out of their $25,000 research development funds.

Support for a third year, if requested, is dependent upon approval and financial support from the scholar’s department.
