Graduate Researchers

DE-INBRE offers many opportunities for Graduate Researchers within our network. Learn more about them below:

INBRE Graduate Professional Development Workshop Funding Request

Delaware INBRE is soliciting applications for funding to support professional development workshops/seminars for graduate students and postdoctoral/clinical working on problems relevant to biomedical research/life sciences/human health disciplines. The topics to be covered are open, some possibilities are: networking events with program alumni, career workshops, CV/resume preparation, how to conduct a job search, effective grant writing, finding support for your Ph.D., entrepreneurship for scientists, navigating graduate school efficiently, presentation/communication skills etc.

Usually, funded projects will request less than $3000 in INBRE support and will have significant additional funding from other sources.  If multiple departments/graduate student organizations and/or DE INBRE institutions are collaborating to deliver a large workshop (over 50 attendees), each can make separate requests.  All INBRE funds must be expended by April 30. 2023. Allowable costs include: speaker fees, travel for the speaker, cost of recording and dissemination, and venue rental.  Note that food, drink  and parking fees for participants are not allowable costs.

INBRE Student Travel Funding Request

Undergraduate and Graduate students who have received research funding from the INBRE program can apply for travel awards to defray the costs of conference attendance relevant to their INBRE supported project.

Eligible students are those who were involved in the INBRE program as undergrads, Delaware State University graduate students who are INBRE funded, and students working in current INBRE pilot project labs on the pilot project proposal work.
