Request a Grant Writer

Fellowships to USA, Canada, and International researchers for support of research in mammalian reproductive biology as it relates to fertility regulation. The fellowships are intended to assist new and talented researchers in launching their careers in teaching and scientific research in universities and colleges. The funds may be used for fellowship stipends, fringes, and institutional overhead.

Any nonprofit research institution, such as a university or medical research center, may apply. The individual nominated by the applicant institution for the postdoctoral fellowship for conduct of the work may be a citizen of any country. The individual should have training and experience at least equal to the Ph.D. or M.D. level and should not have a faculty appointment (i.e., instructor, lecturer or higher). Potential fellows should not have held the doctoral degree more than two years from receipt of the degree.

The applicant institution may make its nomination of a fellow from among its own personnel or elsewhere, but qualifications being equal, candidates from other than the proposing institution itself may carry modest preference.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Fellowships are $52,000 per year for coverage of fellowship stipend, fringes and institutional overhead.

Term of Contract:

The fellowships are for one year. Fellowships generally begin in May or June of the application year and run for 12 months. Renewal for one additional year is possible under special circumstances.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

U.S. institutions must be exempt from federal income taxes under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code and must submit a determination letter from the Internal Revenue Service stating that it is “not a private foundation.”

Any nonprofit research institution, such as a university or medical research center, may apply. If the institution is not located in the United States and has not been classified by the Internal Revenue Service, applicants must submit proof of the institution’s nonprofit status.

The individual nominated by the applicant institution for the postdoctoral fellowship for conduct of the work may be a citizen of any country. The individual should have training and experience at least equal to the Ph.D. or M.D. level and should not have a faculty appointment (i.e., instructor, lecturer or higher). Potential fellows should not have held the doctoral degree more than two years from receipt of the degree.

Individuals nominated by the applicant institution do not have to have their doctorates yet, but must be in their final year of of doctoral study and must expect to receive their degrees in the year that they apply. The trustees will not hold an award open for an extended period while students complete their studies. If their project is awarded a fellowship, they must submit evidence of having been awarded the doctorate before the fellowship can begin.

Only one application per laboratory/sponsor will be considered.

Expenses other than fellowship stipends, fringes, and institutional overhead are not funded. Institutional overhead may not exceed 10 percent of the total fellowship award.

The 2020 application deadline is midnight EST on Wednesday, January 15, 2020.
