Fellowships to USA, Canada, and International researchers for research on reproductive biology in mammals and its relation to fertility regulation. Funding is intended to support early-career teachers and researchers so that they can pursue their careers and become independently funded in their field. Eligible expenses include fringes, institutional overhead, and stipends.
- U.S. institutions must be exempt from federal income taxes under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code and must submit a determination letter from the Internal Revenue Service stating that it is “not a private foundation.”
- Any nonprofit research institution, such as a university or medical research center, may apply. If the institution is not located in the United States and has not been classified by the Internal Revenue Service, applicants must submit proof of the institution’s nonprofit status.
- The fellowship applicant may be a citizen of any country. The individual should have training and experience at least equal to the Ph.D. or M.D. level and should not have a faculty appointment (i.e., instructor, lecturer, or higher). The foundation prefers that potential fellows have not held the doctoral degree for more than two years.
- The applicant is not required to have their doctorate in hand before they apply. But they must be in their final year of doctoral study and must expect to receive their degree in the year that they apply. The trustees will not hold an award open for an extended period while applicants complete their studies. If the foundation funds their project, the applicant must submit evidence of receiving the doctorate before the fellowship can begin.
- The applicant institution may sponsor an applicant from among its own personnel or elsewhere, but, qualifications being equal, candidates from other than the sponsoring institution itself may carry modest preference. The application must include the sponsored applicant’s performance record. The foundation will consider more than one application per institution per year, but only one application per laboratory/mentor per year.
Expenses other than fellowship stipend, fringes, and institutional overhead are not allowed. Institutional overhead may not exceed 10 percent of the total fellowship award.
The 2024 application deadline is 11:59 PM EST on Tuesday, January 16, 2024. The online registration portal will open on September 1st, 2023.
Applicants should receive an email notification of the Foundation’s decision within 1-2 weeks of the trustee meeting.
Prior to submitting a paper proposal to the Lalor Foundation, applicants must complete a one-time online registration.
