Camille & Henry Dreyfus Foundation Seeks Applications for Teacher-Scholar Awards

The New York City-based Camille & Henry Dreyfus Foundation is accepting nominations for its Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Awards Program, which recognizes achievement in the chemical sciences.

Deadline: Feb. 10.

The program supports the research and teaching careers of talented young faculty in the chemical sciences at undergraduate institutions. Based on institutional nominations, the program provides discretionary funding to faculty at an early stage in their careers. The award is based on accomplishment in scholarly research with undergraduates, as well as a compelling commitment to teaching, and provides an unrestricted research grant of $60,000.

The program is open to academic institutions that grant a bachelor’s or master’s degree in the chemical sciences, including biochemistry, materials chemistry, and chemical engineering. Awardees are typically in departments that do not grant a doctoral degree. Nominees must hold a full-time tenure-track academic appointment, be after the fourth and before the thirteenth years of their independent academic careers, and be engaged in research and teaching primarily with undergraduates. Institutions may submit only one Henry Dreyfus nomination annually. Re-nominations are accepted. The foundation distributed about $2.9 million last year in grants.
