SBE Postdoctoral Research Fellowships  (SPRF)


Important Notice

Due to the recent lapse in appropriations, the FY 2019 SPRF review panels were cancelled and have been rescheduled. Consistent with the rest of the Foundation, the SPRF program will likely not be able to meet our customer-service standard of informing applicants about funding decisions for their proposals within six months of the deadline. We will, however, work to make decisions as quickly as practicable (expected May - June 2019).
