The American Genetic Association grants EECG Research Awards to graduate and post-doctoral researchers who are at a critical point in their research, where additional funds would allow them to conclude their research project and prepare it for publication.
These awards are open to any graduate student or postdoctoral fellow who is a member of the American Genetic Association at the time of application – visit http://www.theaga.org/ for membership details.
The program is not intended to fund an entire research project, to initiate new research projects, or to provide salary support. Priority for funding will be given to proposals that address genome-scale questions, or ecological, evolutionary, and conservation genetics questions that are best addressed using genomic approaches in a hypothesis-testing framework. While we will accept applications to work on any organism or group of organisms, we are most interested in projects that will generate results and conclusions that are broadly applicable, with the potential to move the field forward. Funds are awarded to a maximum of $6,000, awarded to the PI or institution (no overhead is provided). Up to ten awards will be granted in 2021.
