Description:
The Small Business Postdoctoral Research Diversity Fellowship program aims to encourage creative and highly-trained recipients of doctoral degrees in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering and mathematical disciplines to engage in hands-on research projects in their areas of expertise at the kind of small innovative businesses that historically have fueled the nation’s economic regime.

This fellowship program offers active Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) participating companies the opportunity to attract top scientific and technological talent at a fraction of the usual cost. At the same time, the program recruits postdoctoral fellows from underrepresented groups to work for at least a year outside an academic setting, contributing to cutting-edge research aimed at promoting scientific excellence and strengthening our nation’s technological prowess.

Each research fellow will receive a stipend of at least $75,000 plus health insurance benefits. The host company, however, will provide only $10,000 toward the stipend as well as a $2,500 administrative fee. With generous support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the program will support 50 positions for a one-year appointment. The program is administered by the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE).
