International Training Grant - Application Period Opening January 24!

The International Training Grant application process opens at the beginning of each year. This grant is for International SRI In Training or Regular Members who are Early Career Researchers*. While the individual must be a non-U.S. citizen, they may be currently training in the U.S. The idea for this grant is to obtain research experience in an institution/laboratory outside of their home country, as well as in a lab which they are not currently in, for a 4-8 week period, as well as to support attendance at SRI's Annual Meeting. Training must take place July 1 - June 30.

Every application must have a cover letter, which can be downloaded here. For more information on the grant and how to apply, click here.

*Early Career Researchers are defined as anyone from post-undergrad, through the first 5 years of a faculty or faculty equivalent position.
