The Convergence Scholars Program cultivates in postdoctoral trainees an integrative vision of science and technology. CSP will provide postdoctoral trainees opportunities to further their experiences and skills beyond the research laboratory. Scholars will learn more about the technology development life cycle by approaching it from various angles, including policy and regulations, technology transfer, education and outreach, business and finances, industry, and the clinic. At the core of this program are activities to further communication and management skills, as well as a focus on translational impact. Participant activities and benefits include workshops in science management and science leadership,deeper engagement with industry, and professional development activities. Supplementing the primary benefit of leadership training and an enhanced perspective in science communication and management, postdoctoral trainees participating in the program will receive a limited stipend to support professional development activities.
