The Al & Val Rosenstrauss Fellowship is targeted at earlier career researchers, who show potential to be stars of the future and who are building credentials for a long career in research.

Valued at a total of $100,000 per year, for four years, fellows receive funding of $80,000 per year (ex GST) from The Rebecca L. Cooper Medical Research Foundation with a commitment by the host institution to provide an additional $20,000 per year.
