1.  Berkeley Postdoctoral Association Professional Development Award
The Berkeley Postdoctoral Association (BPA) is happy to announce the next round of the BPA Professional Development Award program! Successful applicants will be given a one-time award of up to $500 to cover costs associated with presenting at a scientific or professional meeting, including airfare, registration, and/or accommodation. Please see detailed application instructions at for further information. In the year since this program was created, it has already enabled dozens of postdocs to attend scientific meetings, and we are grateful for an unprecedented level of funding to support the continued existence of this program.
There is no specific deadline for the application. Instead, applications will be accepted and evaluated on a rolling basis throughout each quarter of the calendar year, with awards being given to qualified applicants until the funds allocated for that quarter are fully utilized. The current application period extends through December 31, 2018. We encourage you to submit your application as soon as you can provide documentation that your abstract has been accepted at the meeting.
If you have any questions, please email us at with the subject line “BPA Professional Development Award Question”.
