Funding Opportunities

The following funding opportunities may be of interest to UPEH trainees or alumni:

  • The Society of Toxicology has awards for graduate students to fund experiences that are related to toxicology, outside of normal graduate training, and will enhance future career possibilities. The next Supplemental Training for Education Program deadlines are May 1 and October 9. Graduate students who have achieved candidacy are eligible. This is a great opportunity for a student to get training that is not central to the dissertation work but is specifically related to the professional goals of that student. Each application should reflect this approach to personal development; examples of activities that have been funded can be seen at the web page linked above. Creativity is welcome.Please encourage your eligible students to apply. Questions may be directed to bettye@toxicology.org.
  • The United States-Israel Educational Foundation (USIEF) plans to award eight grants to U.S. postdoctoral scholars who seek to pursue research at Israeli institutions of higher education. The grants, which will commence during the 2018-19 academic year, are open to researchers in all academic disciplines and support programs of work in Israel for up to 20 months (two academic years).

    According to USIEF policy, Fulbright postdoctoral fellows must hold official postdoctoral fellow status at their host institutions in Israel, including access to campus resources. Additionally, host institutions will be asked to provide Fulbright postdoctoral fellows a grant no smaller than their own standard institutional postdoctoral award, a description of which should be included in the letter of invitation submitted with the Fulbright application. For more information on the financial contribution required by host institutions, please contact Imri Grinberg at USIEF at imrig@fulbright.org.il. In addition to being a prestigious academic exchange program, the Fulbright Program is designed to expand and strengthen relationships between the people of the United States and citizens of other nations and to promote international understanding and cooperation. To support this mission, Fulbright Scholars will be asked to give public talks, mentor students, and otherwise engage with the host community, in addition to their primary research or teaching activities‎.
