The John Merck Scholars Program

in the Biology of Developmental Disabilities in Children

Important notice

After 21 years, the John Merck Scholars Program in the Biology of Developmental Disabilities has ended. The last awards were made in May 2011.

The John Merck Fund board has decided to refocus the Developmental Disabilities Program on translational research and the dissemination of new knowledge and practices to clinicians. While proud of the Scholars Program’s extraordinary record of support for talented young researchers in brain science, trustees feel the new direction will make a more immediate difference for people with developmental disabilities and for their families.
