The Burroughs Wellcome Fund (BWF) launched the Postdoctoral Diversity Enrichment Program (PDEP) in 2012 to advance the careers of underrepresented minority postdoctoral fellows by enhancing the postdoctoral training and experience of underrepresented minority junior scientists.
Deadline: January 12, 2022
The Postdoctoral Diversity Enrichment Program 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.
This grant supplements the training of postdocs whose research activities are already supported. It is not a research grant.
