Burroughs Wellcome Fund: Postdoctoral Enrichment Program

Diversity in Science Grant Program
Deadline: January 16, 2019

The Postdoctoral Enrichment Program (PDEP) provides a total of $60,000 over three years to support the career development activities for underrepresented minority postdoctoral fellows in a degree-granting institution (an institution includes its affiliated graduate and medical schools, hospitals and research institutions) in the United States or Canada whose training and professional development are guided by mentors committed to helping them advance to stellar careers in biomedical or medical research. Burroughs Wellcome Fund (BWF) is committed to funding the next generation of scientists and researchers, thus we have an interest in advancing the careers of underrepresented minority postdoctoral fellows. Generally, up to 10 awards will be granted for enrichment activities annually. This grant is meant to supplement the training of postdocs whose research activities are already supported. It is not a research grant.

The Burroughs Wellcome Fund launched the Diversity in Science program in 2012 to advance the careers of underrepresented minority postdoctoral fellows by enhancing the postdoctoral training and experience of underrepresented minority junior scientists.

Located in Research Triangle Park, N.C., the Burroughs Wellcome Fund is a private foundation dedicated to advancing the biomedical sciences by supporting research and other scientific and educational activities. Primarily, BWF provides support to early career scientists to develop as independent investigators and to advance fields in the basic biomedical sciences that are undervalued or in need of particular encouragement.
