Transforming the PDA Travel Award into the PDA Professional Development Award (PDA-PDA)

Last updated July 7, 2020

To continue to provide support for our postdoctoral community during the university-related travel suspension, the PDA Travel Committee transformed the PDA Travel Award into a Professional Development Award - termed the PDA-PDA. We hope that the PDA-PDA will help CU Denver | Anschutz postdoctoral researchers to:

  • Sustain high levels of productivity in the new partial work-from-home environment
  • Continue to perform high impact research in the context of the current funding landscape
  • Effectively connect and network with other researchers in their fields
  • Share the exciting research conducted at our institution via online communication, helping to build CU's reputation as a research powerhouse

Currently, the PDA-PDA can be used towards registration fees for virtual conferences and workshops. If you are not sure whether your intended conference or workshop qualifies for the PDA-PDA, please contact the Award Committee at

Please read the instructions carefully. Applications that do not meet eligibility requirements will be disqualified.
