Postdoctoral and clinical fellows should start fine-tuning their abstracts now for the second annual Fellows Award for Research Excellence (FARE) competition. Last year, about 450 fellows applied and 30 were chosen to receive the merit-based awards, which provide up to $1,000 toward travel expenses to a domestic scientific meeting. The deadline for submitting applications for this year's FARE awards is Dec. 15, and the winners will be announced in February. All postdoctoral and clinical fellows-including foreign and visiting fellows-are invited to apply for the awards, which are based on a peer review of submitted abstracts. Application forms and further information are available from each ICD's representative on the NIH Fellows Committee and from the Office of Science Education (phone: 496-3887).
