THREE Parts Grant Workshop Program

In an effort to enhance the submission of extramural grant and fellowship applications from our postdoctoral and predoctoral scholars, the OPDA and OGFA have joined efforts to create a three parts program.  The aim is to provide trainees with faculty expertise in the preparation of a variety of national grants and awards (Part I), work in small writing groups to have peer review of your Specific Aims (Part II), and then utilize a team of 5 reviewers to create an in house Mock Study Section of a full proposal (Part III).

If you need help in crafting your Specific Aims - please see this link.

If you would like to review the eligibility criteria and opportunities for extramural programs that would be a good fit for you, the slide database from our faculty presentations can be found here.

Eligibility:  If you complete all three parts of this workshop and are a FSU postdoctoral scholar or graduate student, you are eligible to receive an intramural grant award ($750/doctoral and $1000/postdoctoral) to support training-related expenses and research supplies or your chosen study.


Provost Postdoctoral Fellowship Program (PPFP)

Florida State University is expanding its efforts to recruit, support, and retain a diverse faculty.  One of those efforts is the creation of a Provost Postdoctoral Fellowship Program (PPFP) intended to enhance the pipeline to academic careers that results in a more diverse faculty. 

What is the PPFP?

  • The PPFP launched in the spring of 2018 and provided funding for up to 10 provost fellows.  We are now accepting applications for the 2022-2024 training period.
  • Funding includes two years of salary support (including health insurance and fringe benefits) plus a small grants award (up to $20,000) for training related expenses.
  • The PPFP is limited to doctoral recipients who are pursing academic careers.
  • Successful applicants will have the potential to contribute to diversity in their academic disciplines.
  • Review of applications will start April 1, 2022 and will continue until all positions are filled.

Who is Eligible?

Travel Awards

As part of FSU’s ongoing efforts to improve the career development of our Postdoctoral Scholars, the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPDA) is pleased to administer a minimum of 10 Career Development Travel Awards. These awards are intended to assist Postdoctoral Scholars with travel to conferences, meetings, or courses to facilitate their career development, learn new techniques, and network as they prepare to transition to careers in any field of their choosing.

Priority will be given to applications demonstrating -

1. The need to disseminate cutting-edge research in a platform setting highly visible to potential future employers or funding agencies.

2. The need for career advancement through a specialty workshop, program, or guided techniques course.

3. Financial need where postdoc or mentor lack travel funds from grants or fellowships to support presentation at a conference.

Allowable Costs:

  • Travel costs
  • Accommodation expenses
  • Meal expenses
  • Conference registration fees


The applicant must be a FSU postdoctoral scholar with at least 12 months of FSU postdoctoral experience (at time of award) under the mentorship of an FSU faculty member, and is still employed as a postdoc for at least 6 months following when the award is used.   A postdoctoral fellow is only eligible for one award during their tenure at FSU.
