Funding

A collection of potential funding opportunities for postdocs and graduate students.
The Presidential Postdoctoral Fellowship program identifies promising Ph.D. graduates from underrepresented groups and/or those who have demonstrated support for underrepresented groups through their teaching and research to spend up to 2 years at Brown University.
The Dean’s Postdoctoral Diversity Fellowship is a two-year research fellowship that was established by the Division of Biology and Medicine at Brown University to help grow, support, and retain a diverse scientific workforce. The fellowship program prepares scientists from groups historically underrepresented in the basic, biomedical, and behavioral sciences for careers in academia and other sectors.
Brown University’s Division of Biology and Medicine is proud to support pre and postdoctoral trainees in a wide range of studies through federally-funded training grants. These training programs are committed to building diversity and providing the resources necessary to help advance trainees in their field.
