By Staff

Applications for the 2024 Boettcher Webb-Waring Biomedical Research Awards program will be due to the campus grants offices in February, according to the following campus-specific instructions:

The Boettcher Foundation established the Webb-Waring Biomedical Research Awards program, which will provide up to five grants of $250,000 each covering up to three years of research activity, to provide independent research opportunities to promising and talented early career investigators. Awardees will carry the title of Boettcher Investigator in acknowledgement of the prestigious award. 


Since the first awards granted in July 2010, the Boettcher Foundation has awarded CU’s 65 current Boettcher Investigators more than $15.1 million. 

Eligible faculty researchers from all four CU campuses are encouraged to apply. For purposes of the 2024 award year, an eligible early career investigator (ECI):

  1. Is an investigator who is four years or fewer from their initial career-track academic appointment as of Jan. 1, 2024 (i.e., whose initial career-track appointments began no earlier than Jan. 1, 2020);
  2. Has not previously received a major independent research award;
  3. Is an investigator who received a terminal degree or completed their initial medical residency within 10 years of Jan. 1, 2024 (i.e., on or after Jan. 1, 2014); and
  4. Is an investigator who is either a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident, as of date of application in 2024.
