The American Contact Dermatitis Society offers fellowships for the purpose of relevant clinical studies directed toward the subject of contact dermatitis. Studies which focus on clinical problems or have applications to clinical problems will receive preferential consideration. These fellowships will not exceed $5,000 each and will favor those in the $3,000 to $5,000 range.
One of the fellowships, the James R. Nethercott Clinical Research Award Fund, honors the memory and achievements of Dr. James R. Nethercott and will provide a clinical research award in the amount of $5,000 for young investigators studying occupational dermatology and/or epidemiology of contact dermatitis.
Eligible Candidates: North, Central and South American medical students, residents, fellows and North, Central and South American dermatologists or investigators within the first five years of their practice, are eligible to apply for these fellowships. Either the applicant or the sponsor must be an ACDS member.
Applications for the 2018 Research Awards are due October 15, 2017 and a second deadline of April 15, 2018.
