The next Call for Applications will begin November 2024! 

The journal Otology & Neurotology provides up to two Cochrane scholarships annually.  Funds ($4000 per scholarship) will be provided to attend one or more Cochrane course in the US or Europe.  Following completion of the course(s), the scholar will be expected to submit a high-quality systematic review or meta-analysis (topic of the scholar’s choice) for publication in O&N.  After publication of the review, scholars will then be invited to join the Editorial Board of O&N to assist with editorial review of similar types of manuscripts submitted for publication. 

The application consists of a typed, single page (no smaller than 12-point font) description of previous experience with systematic reviews/evidence-based medicine and how this scholarship would contribute to the career goals of the applicant.  The ideal candidate is a junior faculty member, though mid-career faculty and fellows will also be considered.
