Funding info

The program will provide a full postdoctoral fellowship for two years, with an option to extend for an additional two years, if warranted. In addition, $10,000 per year will be provided for travel, accommodation, and per diem costs of the fellow for travel related to the overseas laboratory.

Funding may be carried over from one year to the next if the budget is not fully utilized, as long as the fellow does not carry over more than $10,000 in any given year. Unused funds that cannot be carried over will be returned to the overall program budget for the future benefit of other fellows.
