The Johns Hopkins Catalyst Awards were announced in 2015 by the president, provost, and the deans of the University. These grant awards of up to $75,000 support the promising research and creative endeavors of early career faculty at Johns Hopkins with the goal of launching them on a path to a sustainable and rewarding academic career.

The program encompasses not only funding but also mentoring opportunities and the chance to join a cohort of peers at a similar stage in their career. The funds will be allocated on a competitive basis in response to this Request for Applications (RFA).
