Washington University Bear Cub Grant Program

Washington University's Bear Cub Grant Program is soliciting applications from Washington University researchers who want to make the leap from bench scientists to budding entrepreneurs. The program was initiated by the Vice Chancellor for Research to support faculty in translational studies not normally supported by federal grants. Faculty, staff, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students are eligible to apply. The Office of Technology Management (OTM) will award individual grants of up to $75,000, and research selected for funding must be completed within a year. The application process involves two stages, and this year, for the first time, investigators can designate team members to attend Bear Cub workshops and provide assistance throughout the competition.

One-year paid fellowship positions are available with high impact NGOs and government organizations in Burundi, Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, United States and Zambia.
