Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in Biology. The
fellowships encourage independence at an early stage of the
research career to permit Fellows to pursue their
research and training goals in the most appropriate research locations
regardless of the availability of funding for the Fellows at that
site. For FY 2011, these BIO programs are
(1) Broadening Participation in Biology and
(2) Intersections of Biology
and Mathematical and Physical Sciences. Applications
due: October 11, 2011.
Xi, Research Grants for Undergraduate and Graduate Students.
Sigma Xi, a scientific organization, offers grants-in-aid to fund
research in science and engineering disciplines. Grant amounts range
from $100 to $1,000 (with an average award of $600). Deadlines
are October 15 and March 15 annually.
2011 EPA Science To Achieve Results (STAR) Fellowships For Graduate
Environmental Study - These prestigious awards provide two to
four years of full graduate support. Several research topics relate to
the subsurface biosphere including global change, water quality:
hydrogeology and surface water, science & technology for
sustainability: energy among others. Applications due
November 8, 2011.
Graduate Research Fellowships. Consider applying for one of
these prestigious fellowships! They provide three years of support for
graduate study leading to research-based master’s or doctoral degrees
and are intended for students who are in the early stages of their
graduate study. Applications are due November 14-18,
depending on discipline.
ASM invites dedicated
undergraduate faculty in science, technology, engineering, and
mathematics to join the distinguished roster of educators who have

aims to increase the number of civilian scientists and engineers
working at DoD laboratories. Applications due December
2011 EPA Greater Research Opportunities (GRO) Fellowships For
Undergraduate Environmental Study - Eligible students will
receive support for their junior and senior years of undergraduate
study and for an internship at an EPA facility during the summer
between their junior and senior years. The fellowship provides up to
$19,700 per academic year of support and up to $9,500 of support for a
three-month summer internship. Applications
due December 12, 2011.
Undergraduate Research Capstone. The ASM Committee
on Minority Education invites undergraduate students from
under-represented minority groups to apply for the ASM Undergraduate
Research Capstone, a program that helps participants pursue graduate or
professional training by providing them with opportunities to present
