Deadline for Bear Cub Fund grants extended

The University’s Bear Cub Fund has extended its deadline for grant applications to Nov. 14. The fund, which supports innovative translational research, is soliciting grant applications from University researchers who want to move inventions from their laboratories toward commercialization.

Individual grants of $20,000 to $50,000 will be awarded in the spring. Any WUSTL faculty member, postdoctoral fellow, graduate student or employee may apply.

Earlier this year, four Bear Cub grants totaling $150,000 were awarded to WUSTL scientists. For more information about the grants and to download an application, visit
