The New York City-based Camille & Henry Dreyfus Foundation is accepting nominations from academic institutions for its Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Awards Program.
The annual program supports the research and teaching careers of talented young faculty in the chemical sciences at undergraduate institutions who have demonstrated accomplishment in scholarly research as well as a compelling commitment to teaching and, to that end, provides an unrestricted research grant of $75,000.
The program is open to academic institutions in the states, districts, and territories of the United States that grant bachelor's or master's degrees in the chemical sciences, including biochemistry, materials chemistry, and chemical engineering.
Nominees must hold a full-time tenure-track academic appointment; be beyond the fourth and not past the twelfth year of their independent academic careers; and be engaged in research and teaching primarily with undergraduates.
For complete program guidelines and nomination instructions, see the Dreyfus Foundation website.
