The UCF Preeminent Postdoctoral Program, known as P3, targets outstanding postdoctoral scholars starting their position in 2017-2018. In coordination with principal investigators seeking postdoctoral scholars, the College of Graduate Studies provides matching support for salary (minimum $50,000) and benefits for two years and an additional $5,000 travel/research allowance for each scholar.
