KLINGENSTEIN-SIMONS FELLOWSHIP AWARDS IN NEUROSCIENCE
Through its collaboration with the Simons Foundation, the Klingenstein-Simons Fellowship Awards in Neuroscience supports early career investigators engaged in basic or clinical research that may lead to a better understanding of neurological and psychiatric disorders. The fellowship awards promote high-risk, and potentially high-reward, projects.
Aimed at advancing cutting-edge investigations, the awards are presented to highly promising, early career scientists. At this critical juncture in their careers, funding can be a challenge.
