Freeman Hrabowski Scholars Program – $8.6m Potential Support per Scholar

Are you an early career scientist that is interested in long-term funding to advance cutting-edge research while also creating an inclusive lab environment?

The Freeman Hrabowski Scholars, a new program sponsored by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) seeks to support outstanding basic researchers, including physician-scientists, who have strong potential to become leaders in their fields and to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion through their mentorship and understanding of the experiences of trainees from races and ethnicities underrepresented in US science.

Scholars will prioritize scientific excellence in their own research while creating an equitable and inclusive lab climate that values diversity and serves as a model within their own institutions and beyond. Eligible research areas include all basic biomedical science disciplines, as well as plant biology, evolutionary biology, biophysics, chemical biology, biomedical engineering, and computational biology.

Up to 30 Freeman Hrabowski Scholars will be selected in 2023, with future competitions anticipated every other year.

Information sessions hosted by HHMI are coming up soon:

Tuesday, June 14, 2022
2-3 pm CST (virtual)

Wednesday, June 22, 2022
3-4 pm CST (virtual)

To help potential applicants leverage the requirements to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion of this funding opportunity, The Office of the Vice Provost for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (VPDEI) will provide a follow-up discussion session to help guide Principal Investigators on ways they can position new ideas within already existing university-wide efforts to promote early-career faculty DEI.

Tuesday, June 28, 2022
