Candidates must be nominated by their dean or department chair at the degree-granting institution where they will conduct the postdoctoral/fellowship training under the award. Applications must be approved by an official responsible for sponsored programs (generally from the grants office, office of research, or office of sponsored programs) at the degree-granting institution. Candidates should contact one of these offices for information about the nominating process at the institution.
The grant provides $700,000 over five years to bridge advanced postdoctoral/fellowship training and the early years of faculty service.
