The Career Guidance for Trainees (CGT) program provides grants of $30,000 to $50,000 over a one-year period to support demonstration projects that will model affordable, transferable approaches to improving trainees’ readiness for stable, fulfilling careers.
Moving from training to satisfying employment, whether within academe or in other realms, can require skills not always learned at the bench. Helping trainees understand, acquire, and demonstrate skills that make them ready for complex careers should be the goal of submitted projects.
The Burroughs Wellcome Fund will support pilot projects that demonstrate practical approaches to readying scientists for career transitions. Projects may be meant to enhance trainees’ understanding of jobs beyond the Academy, or of career trajectories within academe, or of the flexibility of scientists’ intellectual skill set.
Deadline: March 13, 2020
