SOT is, once again, opening the doors to an array of exciting research and training opportunities through its Supported Awards program. With up to $112,750 in funding available, these awards are designed to fuel innovation and push the boundaries of toxicological research.
Most of the SOT Supported Awards require numerous application materials, including letters of support/recommendation, budget outlines, and more. It is recommended to begin applications for these awards long before their October 9 deadline. Please direct any questions regarding these awards to SOT Headquarters.
Bristol Myers Squibb Graduate Student Research Training Award to Promote Diversity in Toxicology
The Bristol Myers Squibb (BMS) Award for Graduate Student Research in Toxicology is all about diversity and innovation in the field, offering support to Black/African American, Latinx/Hispanic American, or Indigenous American graduate students. Committed to promoting diverse experiences and perspectives in toxicology for the benefit of patients and communities, BMS provides both financial support, with up to $10,000 in funding, and the opportunity to collaborate with BMS scientists. This award is open to graduate students in their final two research years and can cover research costs, travel to scientific meetings, and related training expenses.
Colgate-Palmolive Award for Student Research Training in Alternative Methods
The Colgate-Palmolive Award for Student Research Training in Alternative Methods offers a prime opportunity for individuals committed to replacing animal testing with inventive alternatives. Focused on elevating graduate student research through in vitro methods and non-animal techniques, this award holds the potential to shape the trajectory of toxicological research. With funding of up to $3,750, the training selected by the winning student can encompass in vitro approaches and computer modeling, empowering recipients to drive innovation in the field.
Colgate-Palmolive Grant for Alternative Research
The Colgate-Palmolive Grant for Alternative Research invites applications from researchers dedicated to propelling the domain of animal alternative methods forward with projects that craft, perfect, or authenticate scientifically sound substitutes for animal testing. Whether delving into reproductive and developmental toxicology, neurotoxicology, systemic toxicology, sensitization, or acute toxicity, this grant propels research into alternative methods. With funding reaching up to $40,000, this opportunity is open to scientists at all career stages.
Colgate-Palmolive Postdoctoral Fellowship Award in In Vitro Toxicology
For postdoctoral researchers driven by the ambition to revolutionize toxicological research, the Colgate-Palmolive Postdoctoral Fellowship Award in In Vitro Toxicology presents a unique avenue. Tailored to projects centered on innovative alternatives to animal testing, this award serves as a great opportunity for early-career researchers. Combining funding support and coverage for research-related expenses, with stipends and costs reaching up to $44,000, this one-year award provides a robust opportunity to launch yourself into transformative in vitro toxicology studies.
Syngenta Fellowship Award in Human Health Applications of New Technologies
The Syngenta Fellowship Award accelerates pioneering research for graduate students and postdoctoral trainees in dose-dependent effects of xenobiotics on mammalian systems. This one-year award includes a plaque, $15,000 in fellowship funds, and travel support for scientists who are elucidating toxicological pathways, quantitatively bridging animal models to humans, and blazing the path to a safe and healthy future.
Remember applications for SOT Supported Awards, including the requested additional materials (letters of recommendation, budget sheets, etc.), are due by October 9.
