Request a Grant Writer

Fellowships of $50,000 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.
