2020 BBRF Young Investigator Grant

Dear Researcher,
The Foundation would like to extend our thoughts to you, your families and everyone throughout the world who has been and continues to be affected by COVID-19.

We have extended the deadline for the 2020 BBRF Young Investigator Grant to Tuesday, March 31, 2020. We understand that many institutions and institutional staff have been asked to vacate. Thus, if you are unable to submit an Institutional Assurance letter (Application Requirement K) by the end of the month, we ask that you submit your application without the letter and submit the Institutional Assistance letter when available.

All applications must be submitted online. Please visit our website to submit your application, please also submit your application as early as possible to avoid any last-minute issues that may arise with your submission.

The BBRF Young Investigator Grant program offers up to $35,000 a year for up to two (2) years to enable promising investigators to either extend their research fellowship training or to begin careers as independent research faculty.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Tuesday, March 31, 2020, 11:59 PM Eastern

Please note the following REQUIREMENTS for this year's applicants:

  • You may only apply twice for your first BBRF Young Investigator Grant.
  • If you have previously received a BBRF Young Investigator Grant, you may only apply once more for a second BBRF Young Investigator Grant.
  • You may only be awarded a total of two BBRF Young Investigator Grants.
  • If you are an assistant professor who is currently or has been a P.I. on an NIH R01 Grant (or equivalent national/international; non-mentored award), you are now ineligible to apply for a BBRF Young Investigator Grant.

Thank you for your interest in the BBRF Grants program. If you have any questions, please email us at any time.
