The Burroughs Wellcome Fund is accepting applications for its 2018 Postdoctoral Enrichment Program.
Through the program, grants of up to $60,000 over three years will be awarded to support career-development activities for underrepresented minority postdoctoral fellows in a degree-granting institution (including its affiliated graduate and medical schools, hospitals, and research institutions) in the United States or Canada whose training and professional development are guided by mentors committed to helping them advance to stellar careers in biomedical or medical research.
Up to twelve grants annually will be awarded in support of enrichment activities. Grants are meant to supplement the training of postdocs whose research activities are already supported.
To be eligible, applicants must have no more than thirty-six months of postdoctoral research experience (in a research laboratory) at the time of application and not be more than five years from his/her PhD; be nominated by a qualified mentor at the degree-granting institution where the applicant will receive his/her postdoctoral/fellowship training; have secured a postdoctoral position with funding (including support by the mentor’s existing research grants) at a degree-granting institution in the United States or Canada; and be an underrepresented minorities (i.e., American Indian or Alaska Native, black or African American, Hispanic, or Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander).
