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.) The PDEP award cannot be used to support salary expenses or indirect costs. (Refer to Terms of Grant for information on indirect costs and other requirements for use of funds.) •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. Eligibility For a full explanation of the eligibility requirements, view Request for Proposals.
