    Reporting Requirements

Young investigators who receive two-year awards will be required to submit a one-page, single-spaced progress report at 12 months. Failure to do so will result in the delay or discontinuation of the award. A manuscript submitted for publication in scientific, peer-reviewed journal, resulting from work accomplished during this fellowship, may be submitted in lieu of the final report.

    All publications under the award must explicitly state that the awardees’ work has been performed as a Young Investigator Award recipient of IDSA ERF and NFID. Acknowledgement must also be given to the sponsor supporting the award.
