The American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) remind the science and engineering community of the ASEE/NSF Small Business Postdoctoral Research Diversity Fellowship Program (SBPRDF).  This program places fellows within seven years of completing their Ph.D. degree in a STEM field in some of the nation’s most promising start-up companies. 

Underrepresented postdocs and STEM PhDs who have been displaced by Hurricane Maria on the island of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands are encouraged to apply.  The fellowship provides a base stipend of $75,000, plus optional health care, a professional conference travel allowance, and relocation assistance.   A limited number of one year fellowships are expected to come available.

We welcome all eligible doctoral students (within three months of their defense) and doctoral degree recipients(within seven years of degree completion) to add their online profiles here.  We recommended that applicants complete as much of the profile as possible (except Research Plan) as multiple one year fellowships may soon come available.  Only U.S. Citizens and U.S. Permanent Residents are eligible to participate in this program.
