Pre- and Post-Doctoral Fellowships
Graduate students and post-docs are the engines that keep the data flowing in every lab, but you gotta pay the rent, right!? In addition to the prestige of receiving a fellowship and the useful experience of developing your own idea into a grant, these fellowships will support you as you, in turn, support your PI and the department. So the Grants Team is here to help you face the challenge of writing fellowships.
