Travel awards may be used by Postdoctoral Associates towards presenting a paper or poster at a conference in the your respective field. The funds are intended to help you defray some conference registration and travel costs. The award is open to NYUAD-affiliated Postdoctoral Associates.
Funding is prioritised based on the following criteria:
Please note: Any Postdoctoral Associate who has received additional funding support from another source will automatically fall into Group C. Further, any Postoctoral Associate who applies without an acceptance letter will not be considered for funding.
Please note that any time away must be coordinated with your faculty supervisor in advance, to minimize the impact on your NYUAD responsibilities.
After Receiving the Funds and After the Conference
Within two weeks after the conference, Postdoctoral Associates who receive funding must submit a short, 1-2 paragraph article about their experience at the conference by email to the GPPO. Please include a picture from the conference if you have it. Acknowledgment of funding and a short report is an expectation of receiving the Postdoctoral Travel Award.

The NYUAD Postdoc Collaborative Grant Program provides a supportive opportunity for career development of both early career and established postdoctoral scholars.
The goal of the program is to facilitate the short-term residency of a limited number of distinguished Postdoctoral scholars from NYU Abu Dhabi whose expertise coincides with current research projects at other GNU sites in the NYU Network*.
*Currently, as of Academic Year 2022-23, NYU NY is the only eligible GNU location. We hope to expand to other GNU locations in the near future.
To be eligible to apply to the Postdoc Collaborative Grant Program, you must:
Goals of the Postdoc Collaborative Grant Program
The goal of the Postdoc Collaborative Grant Program is to assist in the advancement of current research by utilizing resources not available in Abu Dhabi or the UAE, to start a new research collaboration, or to start a paper, lit review or article with a collaborator.
Your application will be reviewed based upon any or some of these goals being included in the research statement alongside your application.
Dates and Length of Research
You must carry out your short-term research residency in July 2023 (July 9th 2023 - July 29th 2023). We expect scholars to be in New York for the full 3 weeks during this window to enable them to get the best out of the residency period.

Since the paradigm of the future of work has started to shift, we want our Postdocs to be ready for future jobs, which may require skills beyond academia. These professional development funds will help them explore external preskilling courses to acquire the necessary skills needed to excel in the global job market and the UAE.
This program is designed to help our Postdocs take a preskilling course where the grant is limited to between $200 to $400 each. The recipients are expected to co-share the cost and present at the “Learning Festival Day” for 5/10 minutes in front of the stakeholders, colleagues, and students.
By undertaking this course, the applicants may tap into the jobs that require advanced knowledge and skills in the field of UX, Design, Coding, Cloud/FIN/ED/AG-Tech, Innovation, Teaching, Advanced Research Methods, Scientific Writing, Cloud-Tech, Cybersecurity, etc. The course they plan to undertake should be congruent with their professional development plans
Applications will be announced by email when funding rounds open.
The applicants need to submit a funding application which two team members will review, and this grant can be utilized for taking courses related to preskilling, but not limited to the areas of writing, leadership, management, presentation, UX, Data/Statistical courses, skill-focused conferences, and Tech-focused courses/workshops/boot camps/hackathons, etc. (not offered at NYUAD).
The Application limit is $400.
