2018 Grass Fellowship Program



The 14-week Grass Fellowship Program provides early-career investigators with an unparalleled opportunity to develop and conduct independent neuroscience research projects within the vibrant scientific community of the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL), Woods Hole. Fellows function as both an intellectual and social group during their stay and routinely interact with prominent scientists to build a support network of peers and researchers in their field. In addition to US citizens and permanent residents, international trainees are encouraged to apply. The fellowship is open to graduate students, postdocs and junior faculty. Your proposal does not have to be different from the project you are working on to take advantage of the equipment loaner program, the imaging opportunities at the MBL, the cool summer and resident researchers etc! Former fellows have called the program:the most enriching experience of my early scientific life,” “the greatest training experience imaginable,” and "one of the most important experiences of my career.”

Applications for the 2018 Grass Fellowship Program are now available on the Grass Foundation website. The deadline for applications is December 5, 2017.
