American Kidney Fund: Clinical Scientist in Nephrology Fellowship Program
The goal of the Clinical Scientist in Nephrology (CSN) Program is to improve the quality of care provided to kidney patients and to promote clinical research in nephrology. This goal is achieved by enhancing the training of nephrologists who wish to pursue an academic career and whose primary professional commitment is to scholarship in the provision of patient care. Awardees conduct prevention and outcomes research while receiving advanced training in essential skills such as medical ethics, biostatistics and epidemiology.

The maximum duration of each fellowship is two years. The maximum level of funding is $80,000 per year and shall be used principally to support the candidate and his/her career development. This sum is expected to cover the individual fellow’s salary (which will follow NIH Guidelines according to the post-graduate year plus comparable fringe benefits at the institution, not to exceed $50,000) as well as training-related expenses. Applicants must be US citizens and permanent residents.
