FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are there any funding opportunities for pre-doctoral students at the American Liver Foundation?
Currently there are no funding opportunities for pre-doctoral students.
Must my project focus on basic science? Can I submit a project focused on clinical studies?
Either basic science, or clinical studies are eligible for funding.
My fellowship program is 3 year program but my second and third years are dedicated to research training. I am currently in my 3rd year of the program. Does this make me ineligible for the Postdoctoral Award?
The amount of years of actual research training is counted, so you are still eligible.
One of our transplant doctors is interested in submitting for a Liver Scholar Award however his salary is already covered so he would like to hire a tech and purchase supplies instead of using the award solely for his salary support. Would that be acceptable?
No, the Liver Scholar Award must be used for salary support only.
Can I apply for both a Liver Scholar Award and a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Award?
No, you must apply for one or the other.
I am a faculty member but my job title is Postdoctoral Associate. Prior to this appointment, I was a post-doctoral fellow for 2 years. Am I still eligible for a Liver Scholar Award?
If you are a faculty member then you can apply. Clearly state in your commitment letter from your department chair that you have a faculty appointment.
