2011 MUSC Foundation Developing Scholars Award
The purpose of this award is to recognize and reward junior faculty members who have made outstanding contributions to the research mission of MUSC, either with their individual research program or as part of an interdisciplinary research team, and to promote the continued development of these creative scholars. The award is aimed at individuals who have successfully demonstrated the capacity to compete for extramural funding but who are still in the formative stages of their career and demonstrate exceptional promise for the future. Candidates are restricted to faculty members holding the rank of Assistant Professor who have been on the MUSC faculty at least two, but no more than six, academic years. See below for a full description of this program.
Any member of the MUSC faculty may make nominations. The nominating package should include the full curriculum vitae of the nominee in standard MUSC format, letters from four scholars outside MUSC attesting to the research achievements of the nominee with two of the letters from individuals other than mentors, and a statement from the nominator (not to exceed 1000 words) outlining the candidate’s background and potential for continued growth and development.
