SNI Interdisciplinary Scholar Awards

Stanford Neurosciences Institute, Interdisciplnary Scholars Program

The SNI Interdisciplinary Scholar Awards provide funding to extraordinary postdoctoral scientists at Stanford University engaging in highly interdisciplinary research in the neurosciences broadly defined. 

Scholars have a sponsor and may also recruit a co-sponsor from a different field.  Alternatively, scholars may focus their postdoctoral training in a field or discipline different from their graduate training. Five scholarships will be awarded annually. The selected scholars will be provided funding for two years. This award may not be held concurrently with any other fellowship or scholarship, but sponsors may supplement stipends from research awards with prior approval from SNI. The funding is to be utilized for payments toward tuition, salary, and health benefits

Candidates in a variety of disciplines will be considered: basic and clinical neurosciences, biomedical sciences, physical sciences, social sciences, engineers and experts in human behavior from the fields of education, law, business, and humanities. The awardees are announced annually in December.
