Today is the electronic submission deadline for AHA Pre-doctoral fellowship applications, at least in the Southeast Affiliate. I submitted electronically last week to beat the rush, and mailed in the paper copy the day before yesterday.
That fellowship took over 30 hours of my time, plus some of my advisor’s time, and that of people writing reference reports for me. If I’m funded, it will provide $18,000 stipend support per year for two years.
If you’re going to apply for an AHA pre-doctoral fellowship, let me advise you to start very early. There is ton of paperwork to deal with, even more if you are dealing with animals or human subjects. My application ended up at 50 pages long. However, if you have living subjects, it might be closer to 60, not to mention the legwork involved for those extra pages.
