Funding Resources

Finding funding for your postdoctoral training can be a time consuming process. Time will need to be devoted to finding opportunities that meet your needs. Please pay special attention two different requirements and eligibility as they tend to be different for every granting agency. Once you have decided to submit your fellowship application, please check with your department administrator to determine whether there are any UConn requirements or signatures needed before submission.
