Provost’s Postdoctoral Scholar Research Grants

The primary purpose of the Postdoctoral Scholar Research Grant program is to facilitate the independence of our postdoctoral scholars and help launch their research careers. It does so by providing grants that assist postdoctoral scholars in developing independent research projects and serves as a stepping stone to external funding such as the NIH K99/R00 and F32 grant programs. To achieve these goals, a Postdoctoral Scholar Research Grant provides up to $25,000 in research support.

Postdoctoral Scholar Training & Travel Awards

The Postdoctoral Scholar Travel and Training Awards (up to $3,000) are designed to enable postdocs to attend workshops and conferences or to learn new techniques or perform research at off-site locations or in other labs, experiences which would enhance their training but which cannot be funded through their mentor’s grant.

The application for travel between May/June 2016 to November 2016 is now open. Apply now.

The deadline to submit an application is Friday, May 20, 2016 at 5:00 pm PST.
