The International Society for Research in Human Milk and Lactation (ISRHML) and the Family Larsson-Rosenquist Foundation (FLRF) are delighted to announce applications for 2022 Trainee Expansion Program (TEP) grants are now open.  

TEP grants support early career researchers interested in human milk and lactation. Two types of grants are available:

  • Trainee Bridge Fund grants provide up to USD $100,000 over approximately 12 months to support a research project that will bring recipients collaboration and networking opportunities and lead to an independent position.

  • Trainee Travel Fund grants provide up to USD $10,000 over a period of up to three months so recipients can gain a new skill or acquire experience in a different setting.

Applications open today, 1 August 2022. The deadline to apply is 1 October 2022.

The ISRHML – Family Larsson-Rosenquist Foundation Trainee Expansion Program (TEP) is an international professional development initiative offering a total of USD $1.25 million in grants over five years.

TEP launched in 2016. Following its success, ISRHML and FLRF recharged the program in 2021 with another USD $1.25 million for another five years.

You can meet previous TEP grant recipients and learn about their work here in the TEP Hall of Fame.
