We invite all biomedical junior faculty and postdocs in the United States who lead, or plan to lead, a lab or research team to apply. Biomedical is broadly defined and includes, but is not limited to, basic and translational sciences, public health, behavioral/social research, clinical research, and computational research. We seek people from diverse backgrounds, experiences, and disciplines. Those who are from underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply. 

The application will take about 15 minutes. It concludes with 3 brief open-ended questions we ask you to complete.


Compass is funded by the NIH and is free to Scholars for the duration of the grant.

When available space becomes full, we will place applicants on a waitlist for the next cohort.
