Executive Committee on Research (ECOR)
ECOR has a major internal grants program, virtually a mini-foundation, that annually reviews nearly 700 applications from MGH investigators and fellows and awards approximately 120 internal grants. A major grants program launched six years ago provides interim/bridge support to faculty whose NIH or other federal funding is delayed or otherwise interrupted.

Radcliffe Fellowship Opportunities
Typical fellows (outside the arts) are faculty, and fellowship stipends are targeted to complement sabbatical support from fellows' home institutions. Harvard faculty may also apply, and recent classes have included 8-10 Harvard junior and senior faculty. We aim for a class diverse in many dimensions - career stage (both senior and junior faculty), field, nationality, as well as gender. In the sciences, we also have been encouraging participation by researchers in national or industry labs, though as with academics, we expect home institutions to provide partial support. We do not ordinarily provide postdoctoral fellowships for various reasons, including the large number of alternative sources of funding for such positions.
