Postdoctoral scholars receive stipends funded by their research mentor's grants or by individual research fellowships for independent research and training. Depending on the terms of the fellowship, the stipend is either paid directly by the agency or organization supplying the fellowship, or it will be administered through Caltech's Payroll Office. Some of the most popular Funding opportunities are listed below. For a more complete list, visit the Caltech Fellowships Advising site and download the most current guide. To apply for funding, please contact your Grant Manager.
