New Vision Scholars
The New Vision Scholar Award is a substantial award given to an individual scientist after an extensive review process involving visiting the scientist’s laboratory and assessing the potential of their research to truly push the established boundaries in their field. Due to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, and the rigorous review process necessary to select a New Vision Scholar, New Vision Research (NVR) has postponed the granting of this award until further notice.
While the New Vision Investigator Award provides seed funding for early-career investigators to obtain preliminary data, the New Vision Scholar Award provides funding to established scientists for full studies, similar to a federal grant. Through the New Vision Scholar Award, NVR specifically funds scientists with truly creative and novel ideas which would normally be filtered out of traditional funding review processes due to their high-risk nature.
