Pew Biomedical Programs

Organization Overview

The Pew Biomedical Programs, part of The Pew Charitable Trusts, include the Pew Scholars Program in the Biomedical Sciences and the Pew Latin American Fellows Program. The Pew Scholars Program in the Biomedical Sciences provides $240,000 in funding over four years to young investigators of outstanding promise in science relevant to the advancement of human health who are in their first few years of their appointment at the assistant professor level. The funds may be used, at the discretion of the Pew Scholar, for personnel, equipment, supplies, or travel directly related to the Scholar’s research as to best advance their research and career. The Pew Latin American Fellows Program in the Biomedical Sciences provides support for young scientists from Latin America to receive postdoctoral training in the United States. The Pew Fellowship provides a $30,000 salary stipend in each of two years and an additional $35,000 payment when the Fellow confirms plans to return to Latin America within a maximum of four years from the start date of the grant. The $35,000 portion of the award is for the purchase of supplies and equipment to help establish his/her independent laboratory upon the Fellow’s return to Latin America.
