Research Funding Initiatives
Postdoctoral Fellowships for Academic Diversity
Kavli Institute for Neuroscience Postdoctoral Fellowships for Academic Diversity were established in 2021 to support exceptional scholars who bring a diversity of perspectives, identities, and backgrounds to academic research, including those from groups that are historically underrepresented in the sciences. The Kavli Institute for Neuroscience at the Yale School of Medicine is committed to fostering and supporting an inclusive and representative neuroscience research community. Diversity is vital to achieving excellence and innovation in scientific research.

Innovative Research Awards
Since its launch in 2004, the Kavli Institute for Neuroscience has provided seed grants to Yale investigators to support early-stage, innovative brain research projects that are related to the Institute's goals. Through these grants, the Institute aims to catalyze interdisciplinary collaborations between small groups of investigators aiming to test bold, new ideas.
Kavli Fellows Education Fund
The Kavli Institute for Neuroscience is helping to train the next generation of researchers by supporting a select group of graduate students enrolled in Yale’s Interdepartmental Neuroscience Program (or Combined Program in Biological and Biomedical Sciences, BBS).
