The goal of the Porter Physiology Development Program is to encourage diversity among students pursuing full-time studies toward the Ph.D. in the physiological sciences and to encourage their participation in the American Physiological Society.
The Porter Physiology Development Program provides 1-2 year full-time graduate fellowships in programs leading to the Ph.D. in the physiological sciences at U.S. institutions. The program is open to underrepresented ethnic minority applicants who are citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its territories and student members of the Society. The applicant’s advisor/PI must also be a member of APS.
