Xlab Research Grant Application
Xlab Grants make financial support available to UC Berkeley graduate students engaged in dissertation research and to UC Berkeley post-doc and junior faculty who are interested in conducting experiments as part of their research program.
Decisions are made by the Director of Xlab. Funding decisions may favor first-time applicants and seek to encourage good research practices, including pre-registration, posting data, and posting research materials. The grant should be used within 6 months.
