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.

There are two application cycles for the awards:

  • Travel occurring July 31, 2020 to December 31, 2020.
  • Travel occurring January 1, 2021 to July 31, 2021. 

Due to current university travel guidance, this program is currently suspended. If you’re attending virtual workshops and conferences during this period and need financial support, please email us at postdocs@usc.edu.

Eligibility: The Postdoctoral Scholar Training and Travel Award is only open to current postdocs in the following job titles: Postdoctoral Scholar – Research Associate (Job Code 98227), Postdoctoral Scholar – Teaching Fellow (98223), Postdoctoral Scholar – Fellowship Trainee (Job Code 98219), and Postdoctoral Research Associate (Job Code 98067).
