The fellowships are available for postdoctoral training in all areas of study at the University and seek to attract graduate students from Penn and other institutions who have completed, or will complete their requirements for PhD by their start date. In addition postdoctoral scholars from other institutions who have completed their dissertation within the last three years are eligible. Persons with professional degrees (such as MD, DMD, VMD, JD) who are within a year of completing their post-degree professional training from Penn and other institutions will also be considered. Candidates must be US citizens or permanent residents. Postdocs, residents and fellows who currently have a position at Penn are ineligible for this program.
Fellows receive a stipend of $43,000 in year 1 with 2,000 increments in years 2 and 3, as well as annual allowances for travel ($2,000) and research ($5,000), and a one-time relocation expense of $5,000.
