Macy Foundation Seeks Applications for 2016 Faculty Scholars Program


Founded in 1930 by Kate Macy Ladd in memory of her father, the Josiah Macy, Jr. Foundation supports projects that broaden and improve health professional education.

To that end, the foundation has issued a Call for Applications for the sixth class of Macy Faculty Scholars, an annual program designed to identify and nurture the careers of promising educational innovators in medicine and nursing.

Scholars must implement new educational initiatives at their home institutions and participate in career development activities. Scholars will receive salary support of up to $100,000 per year for two years; at least 50 percent protected time for two years to pursue educational projects; active mentorship by a senior faculty member at their institution; access to the program’s national advisory committee; and opportunities to participate in Macy conferences and other national meetings.

To be eligible, applicants must have been a doctorally-prepared faculty member for more than five years in a United States accredited nursing school, allopathic medical school, or osteopathic medical school. Applicants also must be nominated by the dean of the school and have a faculty mentor who will advise the candidate on the educational innovation project and on his/her career development. In addition, all applicants must be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States or its territories.

An informational webinar for interested applicants will be held on December 15, 2015, at 2 p.m. (EST). Finalists will be notified by April 27, 2016, and interviewed on June 6-7, 2016, in New York City.

See the Macy Foundation website for complete program guidelines, application instructions, and to RSVP for the webinar.
