Request a Grant Writer

Awards of $75,000 to USA and territories undergraduate chemical science faculty at IHEs to recognize scholarly research and exceptional commitment to teaching. Awards are intended to provide an unrestricted research grant to full-time tenure-track professors in chemical sciences, including biochemistry, materials chemistry, and chemical engineering.

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, 

Recommendations for awards are based on evidence of outstanding educational efforts and the nominee’s scholarly research achievements with undergraduates as an independent faculty member, as assessed by a panel of distinguished faculty in the chemical sciences. The three outside letters of support are of particular value to the reviewers. Other considered factors are: awards and honors, publication of research achievements in leading journals, and success in attracting research funding.

Term of Contract:

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Awards Program is open to academic institutions in the States, Districts, and Territories of the United States of America 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. A potential nominee is ineligible if there is active participation or substantial research productivity in a Ph.D. program of another department or in an interdisciplinary Ph.D. program. Nominees must hold a full-time tenure-track academic appointment, be after the fourth and not after the twelfth 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. Renominations are accepted.

Charges associated with indirect costs or institutional overhead are not allowed. Defrayal of academic-year salary is not permitted.
