Hands-On Experience for Developing Researchers

Generous support from scientific funding agencies enables UC Davis graduate students and postdoctoral researchers to receive specialized training from our world-class faculty. 

A training grant is an agreement that provides funding intended to pay stipends to, and provide a coordinated training program for students, postdoctoral researchers, staff, teachers and/or faculty who are selected by the institution to be a part of the training program. Training grants are different from fellowships, which generally provide stipends for individuals who are selected by the agency. Below are some training grants specific to the biological sciences. Graduate Studies maintains an additional list of training grants.
