|Institutions may nominate a maximum of one investigator per grant cycle. The nomination can be in either of the Pathway award types:
Nominations are accepted from U.S. accredited academic and non-profit research institutions. For the purpose of this award, an institution includes all associated departments, medical schools and graduate schools.
Individual components of multi-component institutions (e.g., University of California Los Angeles and University of California Berkeley within the University of California system, or Harvard University and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center within the Harvard system) are sufficiently independent to be considered individual institutions. Each component may nominate one candidate as an independent entity.
