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.   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.
