CHRI Announcement: Funding Increase for the Postdoctoral Support Program FY 2019

Thursday, June 21, 2018

The Stanford Child Health Research Institute is pleased to announce an increase in postdoctoral funding through its Postdoctoral Support Program to match the campus-wide minimum for postdoctoral fellows. As such, all postdoctoral fellows awarded through the program in fiscal year 2018 will receive up to $75,000 per year for up to two years to support their salary and benefits.

Starting fiscal year 2019, the Postdoctoral Support Program will fund 8 postdoctoral fellows during each fall and spring application cycle, for a total of 16 fellows annually.  Total CHRI funding to maternal and child health postdoctoral fellows will increase to $2,400,000.

“By increasing support for our Postdoctoral Support Program, we will expand the breadth and depth of our commitment across both clinical and non-clinical departments here at Stanford,” says Anthony Oro, MD, PhD, co-director of the CHRI and the Eugene and Gloria Bauer Professor of Dermatology. “CHRI awardees and their mentors will now have additional means to tackle challenging scientific questions and potentially translate their discoveries into action.”

The Postdoctoral Support Award covers salary and fringe benefits only. In addition, postdoctoral scholars may be eligible to receive a “bonus” incentive of up to $7,500 by applying for external funding outside of Stanford. For more information about the CHRI Postdoctoral Scholar Program, visit
