The Fellows Award for Research Excellence (FARE) Program is in its 14th year of providing recognition for the outstanding scientific research performed by intramural fellows with fewer than five years of total research experience at the NIH. Sponsored by the NIH Fellows Committee (FelCom), NIH Institutes and Centers, the Office of Intramural Training and Education, and the Office of Research on Women’s Health, this annual competition selects the top 25 percent of abstracts from 56 different study sections to receive a $1,000 travel award. Winners use the travel award to present their research at a scientific meeting during the subsequent fiscal year.

The FARE competition attracted more than a 1,000 applicants, representing nearly a third of all eligible graduate students, postdocs and clinical fellows throughout the institutes and centers of the NIH. All submitted abstracts underwent anonymous peer-review and were scored by a panel of judges from the applicant’s chosen study section. This year 259 winners were selected to receive travel awards. FARE competition winners will present posters (marked by a blue ribbon) on their research during the NIH Research Festival. The FARE Subcommittee of FelCom thanks all participants and congratulates the winners of FARE 2011.

We encourage all eligible intramural postdoctoral and clinical fellows to apply to the next FARE competition in Spring 2011. For more information, please visit
