CAMS and PATH Move to Self-Nomination

Beginning with the 2015 deadline, the Career Awards for Medical Scientists (CAMS) and the Investigators in the Pathogenesis of Infectious Disease (PATH) programs will move from institutional nominations to self-nomination.  All proposals must be submitted from accredited degree-granting institutions in the U.S. or Canada on behalf of the applicant. 

Applications must be approved and signed by an authorized official responsible for sponsored programs (grants/contracts office, office of research, etc.) at the degree-granting institution prior to the submission deadline.  Candidates must be citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. and Canada.

BWF will also implement a two-stage application process – preproposal stage and invited full proposal stage for CAMS and PATH programs to accommodate the anticipated increase in applications.
