IHPBA Kenneth Warren Fellowship

The President and Council of the IHPBA are honoured to announce the Kenneth W. Warren Fellowship, made possible by a generous donation to the IHPBA by Dr. Kenneth W. Warren.

Due to generous grant funding from the CGF E Alexander Stent Fund, Bank of America, N.A., Trustee, we are in a fortunate position to award two fellowships of $50,000 for 2021/2022. Each $50,000 is to be used to support the recipient's own salary in conducting clinical or laboratory research over 12 months in a host department and country outside the applicant's own department and country. The fellowship may commence at any time after the award but no later than six months after it has been awarded.
