Baxter Inc logo Baxter’s Young Investigator Awards reward research applicable to the development of therapies and medical products that save and sustain patients’ lives. They invite current graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to submit descriptions of ongoing research. The Baxter Young Investigator Awards program consists of two tiers:

  • first-tier awards include a $3,000 cash prize and an on-site visit to Baxter to present the award-winning research
  • second-tier awards receive a $500 cash prize

All applicants must be currently enrolled graduate students or postdoctoral fellows in North America at the time of submission and must be primarily responsible for the research described. All first-tier recipients must commit to orally presenting their results at the annual Baxter Young Investigator Awards ceremony.
