NIGMS awards three types of grants for research training and fellowships: Institutional National Research Service Awards (pre- and postdoctoral training grants), Individual National Research Service Awards (pre- and postdoctoral fellowships), and Minority Access to Research Careers (MARC) Awards (undergraduate student training in academic research awards, predoctoral fellowships, faculty fellowships, visiting scientist fellowships, and ancillary training awards).
The Sloan Research Fellowships seek to stimulate fundamental research by early-career scientists and scholars of outstanding promise. These two-year fellowships are awarded yearly to 118 researchers in recognition of distinguished performance and a unique potential to make substantial contributions to their field.
Dana Foundation science and health grants support brain research in neuroscience and immunology and their interrelationship in human health and disease.
The 21st Century Science Initiative supports research in three topics: Bridging Brain, Mind, and Behavior; Studying Complex Systems; and Brain Cancer Research.
Deadline: Multiple deadlines
The FASEB MARC Program will be sponsoring EB 2014 Travel Awards to help support the participation of full-time faculty/mentors, postdoctoral fellows, and students from minority institutions (MIs) and historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). The travel awards are funded up to $1,850 each for travel-related expenses and meeting registration. Travel awards are provided as reimbursements after the meeting. The travel awards are supported by a federal training grant from the NIGMS/NIH; therefore, only U.S. citizens and permanent residents of the U.S. are eligible for the travel awards. Faculty/mentors,students and postdoctoral fellows from underrepresented groups at majority institutions are also eligible to apply for the travel awards.
