Eager to pursue a professional development opportunity but don’t have the funding? Let the UNC Network of Research Professionals help!

The UNC NRP Professional Development award provides supplemental funding (in the form of reimbursement) to help cover development opportunities for UNC-CH or UNC Health employees whose work is focused on Human Subjects Research. The event or opportunity should relate to the employee’s position and meet an individual professional development goal. Funds may be used for conferences, certificates, continuing education, classes or seminars, or similar instructional opportunities that are not already covered by other resources. Individual awardees can receive up to $500, depending on cost of opportunity and strength of application. Application and further details are attached. Return completed applications and supplemental materials to or reach out with any questions. Feel free to share with colleagues who may be interested and eligible!

Not sure where to start? Consider some of the following opportunities that past awardees have pursued (or find your own!):

I look forward to receiving your application!

Thank you,
