Grant of $60,000 to a USA or territories higher education institution for unrestricted research carried out by early-career faculty members in the chemical sciences. The grant is based on accomplishment in scholarly research with undergraduates, as well as a compelling commitment to teaching.

Of the total amount, $5,000 is to be allocated for departmental expenses associated with research and education. Charges associated with indirect costs or institutional overhead are not allowed. Defrayal of academic-year salary is not permitted.

Foundation approval is not required for budgetary changes after an award is made. If the awardee leaves the institution, the transfer of the remaining funds requires prior Foundation approval.
