Amount of funding
$875,000 total over 5 years

These research fellowships are for young faculty in the natural and physical sciences or engineering. The intent of the Fellowship Program is to provide support for unusually creative researches early in their careers; faculty members who are well established and well funded are less likely to receive the award. It is further the intent of the Foundation to emphasize support for innovative individual research that involves the Fellows, their students, and junior colleagues, rather than extensions or components of large-scale, ongoing research programs.
