De Luca Foundation is pleased to announce the winners: $30k in COVID financial aid awarded to Graduate and Post-doctoral students worldwide

To strengthen the hands of future MOVEMENT SCIENTISTS during these difficult times, the De Luca Foundation is supporting 30 graduate students and post-docs each with $1,000.00 USD.

While researchers worldwide have been affected by the COVID-19 situation, those experiencing the largest strains are graduate students and post-docs who rely solely on grants and stipends to progress both science and their professional development. We hope the funds will provide temporary relief during the 2020 summer months while institutions, labs, and people adjust to a “new normal.”
