NSBRI’s First Award Fellowship provides support for academically talented young scientists to conduct space-related biomedical or biotechnological research that aligns with the Institute’s goals.
This fellowship offers young scientists the opportunity to manage their own space-related biomedical research project while continuing to learn from an experienced faculty mentor.
NSBRI solicits applications to the First Award Program annually. Applicants must prepare proposals with the support of a mentor, and all proposals are evaluated by NSBRI’s First Award Fellowship Committee, a distinguished group of scholars representing various scientific backgrounds.
Note: As of October 2015, applications are no longer being accepted for this program.
The program is open to U.S. citizens, permanent residents or persons with pre-existing visas obtained through their sponsoring institutions that permit postdoctoral training for the project’s duration. Funding is for a two-year period, with an optional third year based on merit and need, and includes an allocation for health insurance.
