Dreyfus Foundation Accepting Applications for Senior Scientist Mentor Program in the Chemical Sciences

Senior Scientist Mentor Program

Deadline: September 11, 2013
Announcement: early November 2013
The Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation supports emeritus faculty who maintain active research programs with undergraduates in the chemical sciences. The Senior Scientist Mentor Program provides an award of $20,000 over two years for undergraduate stipends and modest research support.
The Senior Scientist Mentor Program is open to all academic institutions in the States, Districts, and Territories of the United States of America that grant a bachelor's degree or higher in the chemical sciences, including biochemistry, materials chemistry, and chemical engineering. Faculty with emeritus status on or before October 2013, and who maintain active research programs in the chemical sciences, may apply to the program. More than one application per department or institution is permitted.
Successful applicants are expected to be closely engaged in a mentoring relationship with undergraduate students. The evaluation will be based on both an assessment of the research proposed and the plans for undergraduate participation in the research. An applicant's history of mentoring undergraduates is favorably viewed. Current Senior Scientist Mentors.
The Senior Scientist Mentor Program provides a $20,000 award over two years, intended mostly for undergraduate stipends. Modest research support is also 
allowed. Funds are normally expended over a period of three years after notification of an award. Charges associated with indirect costs or institutional overhead are not allowed. Faculty salary and any expenses associated with graduate students are not permitted. Foundation approval is required for significant budgetary changes. If the awardee leaves the institution, the transfer of the remaining funds requires prior Foundation approval.
Application Procedure
All application materials and letters of support must be received at the Foundation office by the deadline. Applications recommended for approval are presented to the Foundation's Board of Directors in time for award announcements by early November 2013.
