Frontier and Catalyst Awards: Nominations close March 31

Applications for the Discovery and Catalyst Awards to support university faculty and their research will be accepted through March 31. Details and application materials are on the Office of the Provost website.

The Johns Hopkins University Discovery Awards will focus on cross-university, faculty-led research and discovery. A number of the awards will be reserved for faculty teams that will use the funds to get started while they seek an externally funded, large-scale grant or cooperative agreement.

The Johns Hopkins University Catalyst Awards are for early-career faculty across the university—defined as having been first appointed to a faculty position 3 to 10 years ago—who are undertaking exceptional research or creative endeavors. The awards will help these individuals launch their promising careers during the crucial years when startup funds are depleted and external funding or other support may be elusive.

The awards, which will provide $15 million in support over the next three years, will assist faculty who reflect the full breadth of knowledge, discovery, and creativity across the university.
