This funding opportunity is exclusively available for pediatric rheumatology fellows entering their third year who wish to perform a CARRA-related research project. The intent of this funding program is to augment the fellow’s research portfolio by supporting a project that extends, enhances or is distinct from their primary scholarly project, as defined and required by the ABP for Board eligibility. The project must not be necessary to meet the ABP requirement for scholarly work product, but it may be supplemental.
