The Caregivers at Carolina Program provides support to physician scientists who are facing substantial caregiving demands at home. Applications are due on January 15, 2021 before 11:59pm EST.
The UNC School of Medicine Caregivers at Carolina program, funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation (“DDCF”) is accepting applications from physician scientists who are facing extraprofessional caregiving responsibilities. If selected, faculty could receive $35,000 – $55,000 per year for 1-2 years to provide direct research support (e.g., technician time, grant writing support, etc.) or buy out of clinical time so that the scientist may maintain research productivity during a transient period when caregiving demands are high. The program will also provide access to mentoring and career development resources.
Applications are now being accepted and are due on January 15, 2021 before 11:59pm EST. Click here to learn more.
