The purpose of the Fahn Award is to recognize and support a young investigator whose work in dystonia shows particular innovative promise. A young investigator is defined as a person with an earned doctorate holding an untenured tenure-track appointment at the Assistant Professor level or equivalent.


Up to $100,000 per year of funding will be provided for 3 years, with renewal each year depending on evidence in a detailed progress report showing progress satisfactory to the Foundation due nine months after receipt of the first payment and annually thereafter.


The applicant seeking Foundation funding must be employed at a non-profit organization or institution (each referred to as a "grantee institution") within the United States, Canada, and those foreign countries where supervision of grant administration is possible.


This funding opportunity requires applicants to hold U.S. Citizenship.
