November 30, 2020

Chicago, IL 60612

The University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) Office of Postdoctoral Affairs would like to offer a new $100 award that can be used toward advancing scholarship, learning, and professional development in the time of COVID. These small awards could be used toward attending a virtual conference or professional development course or workshop, or be used to offset the cost of a professional membership or subscription to a professional journal, for example.

Applicants must be UIC postdoctoral fellows with a full time appointment as a Postdoctoral Research Associate or Postdoctoral Research Fellow, and within five years of receipt of a terminal doctorate degree (e.g. PhD/MD/PharmD). If you consider yourself a postdoc but have a different title please reach out to for inquiry.

This award is in addition to the $500 UIC Postdoctoral Fellow Travel Award, so all postdocs will be eligible to apply, regardless of whether you have previously been awarded a Travel Award.

  • The maximum amount to be awarded is $100.
  • Applicants may only submit a single application per award cycle. Those who are not selected are welcome to reapply.
  • Applicants must apply and be approved for the award before the professional activity takes place.
  • Funds from the awards are not transferable to another professional activity or lab member.
  • Applicants can only receive a single small scholarship award during the entire course of their fellowship at UIC.

Please see policy and guidelines and request form.
