Packard Fellowship for Science and Engineering

The University has been invited to submit two nominations for consideration for the David and Lucile Packard Foundation’s Fellowships for Science and Engineering, which provide research fellowships in the amount of $875,000 over five years for junior faculty in the natural and physical sciences and engineering. Fifty universities have been invited to nominate candidates, and the Packard Foundation will select 20 Fellows from among the nominees. The program seeks to support outstanding faculty members as they build productive research programs. The Foundation emphasizes support for research that involves the Fellows, their students, and junior colleagues rather than extensions or components of large-scale, ongoing research programs. Disciplines that will be considered include physics, chemistry, mathematics, biology, astronomy, computer science, earth science, ocean science, and all branches of engineering. Candidates must be faculty members in the first three years of their faculty careers, that is, those whose initial appointments began no earlier than May 31, 2017, and no later than May 31, 2020.


  • To nominate a candidate, please send a letter of nomination, the nominee’s curriculum vitae, and a no more than two page description of the candidate’s research program with an outline of his or her general goals for the next five years to Dr. Angela Mullis. Self-nominations will not be accepted.
