Subject: Foundation prizes in biomedical science

Greetings from the Vilcek Foundation!

We are a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising awareness of immigrant contributions to American society.

I am writing to share that the Vilcek Foundation is seeking applicants for the 2016 Vilcek Prizes for Creative Promise in Biomedical Science.  We are accepting applications from young, foreign-born researchers age 38 and under from now through June 15, 2015.  Three winners will each receive a $50,000 unrestricted cash prize and will be honored at an awards ceremony in New York City in April 2016.

I believe that there may be many potential candidates for the prizes among your network of biomedical researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center.  I hope that you will join us in sharing the call for applications with your colleagues.

Complete eligibility requirements and online application can be found on Vilcek.org<http://www.vilcek.org/prizes/creative-promise/biomedical-science.html>.  If you have any questions, please feel free to reach me at (212) 472-2500 or via email.
