FelCom - FARE

FARE is the acronym for the Fellows Award for Research Excellence, begun in 1995 to provide recognition for the outstanding scientific research performed by intramural postdoctoral fellows.

FARE2014 will be open for abstract submission online between February 20 and March 20, 2013 (5:00 PM EDT).

The award is sponsored by the NIH Fellows Committee, the Scientific Directors, and the NIH Office of Intramural Training and Education, and is funded by the Scientific Directors. Fellows submit an abstract of their research, which is peer reviewed in a blind study section competition.

  • Winners of FARE awards will each receive a $1000 stipend to attend a scientific meeting at which they will present their abstract, either as a poster or a seminar.
  • FARE winners are asked to present their work at a dedicated poster session on the day of the FARE awards presentation ceremony.
  • FARE winners serve as judges for the following year's FARE competition (please see the Rules and Regulations for more information).

FARE applications are accepted every year in March. For more information on the application process, please see the Rules and Regulations.
