Regardless of degree, the applicant must have at least ONE (1) full year of fellowship remaining in which to complete the project. For the Fall 2022 Grant Cycle, this means you should not complete your fellowship prior to November 2023. Past recipients of an Endocrine Fellows Foundation grant award are eligible to apply.
The applicant’s institution, the sponsor, and the applicant will be jointly responsible for the accuracy and validity of the information contained in the application. All parties will need to sign-off on the application via the application portal.

Grant recipients will be required to make regular progress reports to the Board of Directors of the Endocrine Fellows Foundation. The first such report for fellows will be due six months from the starting date of the research project, and the final report due at the end of twelve months. The final project report must include a reconciliation of the actual project expenses compared to the originally submitted budget for the grant. ANY changes to the proposed research or budget must be approved by the Endocrine Fellows Foundation.
Grants applications are reviewed by a national faculty team of research thought leaders. The Endocrine Fellows Foundation will supply critique comments upon request. Applicants are welcome, if not funded the first time, to resubmit their grant for possible funding in the next cycle.
Notify the Foundation of all such publications at email@example.com. This information will be shared with Grant donors. We would like to share your success with the Endocrine Fellows Foundation Community via our newsletters, website, or social media. Please let us know if you would prefer that your work not be shared publicly.
Each grant will be a one-time award for a one-year time frame, The Endocrine Fellows Foundation will not fund salaries of any kind or indirect research costs (i.e., computers, software, durable equipment, faculty support, etc.), organization memberships, or tuition support for degree enhancement. Expenses submitted in a project budget can include experimental supplies, animal costs contingent on compliance with applicable PHS Policy requirements, and expenses for clinical studies including costs for participation of subjects, statistical analysis, and evaluation of results. Statistician costs and publication costs should each be less than 25% of the submitted budget.
Endocrine Fellows Foundation research grants will be awarded to the institution on behalf of the fellow. The institution will then administer the funds. Unused EFF grant funds must be returned to the Foundation 60 days after the project ends or the fellow awardee leaves the designated institution.
