URBEST Microgrant Applications
URBEST is excited to announce a request for URBEST Microgrant Applications to support initiatives led by graduate student and/or postdoctoral groups who are advocating for professional development and skill building opportunities in areas of science policy, industry, regulatory science, data science, higher education, communication, or outreach. These areas are suggestions and the list is by no means exhaustive. Deadline for proposals are Friday, July 5, 2019.
Funding: Most awards will be around $1,500, with the potential for up to a maximum on $3,000 for highly innovative and high-impact proposals. The timeline is for one year, starting September 1, 2019.
Paperwork: This email contains three attachments: the request for microgrants review process (doc), the application form (doc) and the scoring rubric (pdf). Please submit your application to Jennifer_Brennan@urmc.rochester.edu in PDF format.
Eligibility: UR groups (medial center, river campus, or a combination) managed by graduate students and postdocs are eligible to apply. Your group is expected to consist of at least 50% full time graduate students, at least one URBEST trainee, and we strongly recommend that a proposal is submitted by a group and not an individual. Only one submission per group will be accepted.
Any questions or would like to brainstorm idea? Contact Tracey_Baas@urmc.rochester.edu She will not be part of the review committee.
