Recognizing the critical importance of training young clinical investigators, Herbert and Florence Irving earmarked a major portion of the Irving Endowment for the Florence and Herbert Irving Clinical Research Career Awards, usually referred to as the Irving Scholars. The program is open to applicants from all clinical departments at the Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. Scholars are selected on the basis of research proposals that reflect independent, well-developed scientific initiative in clinical investigation. These three-year awards provide substantial salary support allowing the Scholar more time for clinical investigation.
