  • L'Oreal USA For Women in Science fellowship program [PostDocs]   A national awards program that annually recognizes and rewards five U.S.-based women researchers at the beginning of their scientific careers. Recipients receive up to $60,000 each that they must put towards their postdoctoral research. The 2016 L'Oréal USA for Women in Science application period opened on November 30th, 2015 and will close on February 5, 2016. [The 2015 L'Oréal USA for Women in Science application period ran from February 2, 2015 to March 20, 2015 . The 2014 deadline was May 19th. Opened March 24th].  More information here
  • L'Oreal-UNESCO For Women in Science fellowship program [PhDs + PostDocs]   A collection of national award programs that annually recognizes and rewards women researchers at the beginning of their scientific careers. Recipients receive a monetary award. Each nation has a slightly different program & deadlines, so please check it out!   More information here
  • DOE Office of Science Supplemental Support [Students]  The SCGSR program provides supplemental awards to outstanding U.S. graduate students to pursue part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE laboratory in areas that address scientific challenges central to the Office of Science mission. [ie: Money to live & study at BNL] The research opportunity is expected to advance the graduate students’ overall doctoral thesis while providing access to the expertise, resources, and capabilities available at the DOE laboratories. Must be a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident Alien. The award provides support for inbound and outbound travel to the laboratory, and a monthly stipend of up to $3,000 for general living expenses while at the host DOE laboratory during the award period. The 2021 deadline is May 5, 2021 at 5:00PM Eastern Time. More information here
  • PhD fellow in Experimental Particle Physics [Students]   The High Energy Heavy Ion (HEHI) at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen, announces a Ph.D. fellowship with start 1 January 2016 or as soon as possible thereafter. The group’s current research is centered around the ALICE experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. The group operates the Forward Multiplicity Detector (FMD), and the TPC-laser system in ALICE. Current research interests include the study and analysis of collective anisotropic flow, identified particle spectra and global observables (multiplicity) over a broad range of rapidity. We are seeking an excellent PhD candidate with demonstrated initiative and accomplishments to strengthen and further develop the group’s activities in a 3 year Ph.D. fellowship.   More information here
  • AIP and Member Society Government Science Fellowships [PhDs @ All levels]  Four different fellowship programs targeted towards physics' PhDs that would like to make an impact on US government policy. The various programs include: AIP State Department Science Fellowship, AIP Congressional Science Fellowship Program, APS/AIP STEM Education Policy Fellowship, and AIP Member Society Fellowships.   More information here
