The Postdoctoral Enrichment Program of the Burroughs Wellcome Fund 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.

The program provides a total of $60,000 over three years as follows:

  • Year one: $20,000 will be granted to support enrichment activities of the postdoctoral fellow ($10,000 for research supplies or equipment uniquely required to enhance the postdoctoral fellow’s research and $10,000 for education and training, including for mentors in the research lab where the postdoctoral fellow is assigned.)  
  • Year two: $20,000 (same allocation as year one)
  • Year three:  $20,000 will be granted to help the postdoctoral fellow advance research efforts towards the professoriate.  The funds must be used to develop independent, innovative areas of research.

Send questions via email to Alfred Mays at amays@bwfund.org or Melanie Scott at mscott@bwfund.org with "2018 PDEP" as the subject line.

The next deadline is January 16, 2018. Find more information here
