Apply now for Bear Cub grants

Washington University’s Bear Cub Fund is soliciting grant applications from university researchers who want to move inventions from their laboratories toward commercialization.

The fund supports innovative translational research not normally backed by federal grants. Any WUSTL faculty member, postdoctoral researcher, graduate student or employee may apply.

Individual grants of $20,000 to $75,000 will be awarded in January. Applications are due Nov. 30.

The Bear Cub Fund was established in 2002 and is administered through the Office of Technology Management. Earlier this year, five Bear Cub grants totaling $240,000 were awarded to WUSTL scientists.
