The NYSCF Fellowship Program is the largest dedicated stem cell fellowship program in the world. It was established in 2006, and was created to train and support young scientists in the pursuit of innovative and groundbreaking stem cell research. In addition to financial support, fellows are welcomed into NYSCF’s greater Innovator Community where researchers are provided additional opportunities for scientific growth and collaboration through an annual scientific retreat, NYSCF’s annual conference, mentorship opportunities, and media training, among others. The infrastructure provided by the NYSCF Innovator Program ensures that scientists are best equipped to realize the potential of their research goals, and in turn, accelerate progress in the field of stem cell research.
Principal support for the program is provided by Fiona and Stan Druckenmiller with additional support provided by The Richard J. Massey Foundation for Arts and Sciences and other generous donors.
The New York Stem Cell Foundation has now released its 2016 Postdoctoral Fellowship RFA, which is open to postdoctoral candidates at institutions in New York, Connecticut and New Jersey. The fellowship provides up to 2 years of funding with the possibility of a 3rd year pending satisfactory progress. Fellowships provide $50,000 annually in stipend plus $2,500 annually for computer or travel expenses.
