Vanderbilt University may nominate one faculty member in the chemical sciences for the Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Awards Program.
The Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Awards Program supports the research and teaching careers of talented young faculty in the chemical sciences with an unrestricted research grant of $100,000. Nominations must provide compelling evidence of the advance of important knowledge in the chemical sciences by the nominee and describe dedication and contributions to education in the chemical sciences, particularly with respect to undergraduates.
The chemical sciences include chemistry, biochemistry, materials chemistry and chemical engineering.
- Must hold full-time tenure-track academic appointment
- Expected to have been appointed no earlier than mid-year 2017
- May be renominated
Criteria for selection include an independent body of scholarship attained in the early years of their appointment (see below), and a demonstrated commitment to education signaling the promise of continuing outstanding contributions to both research and teaching.
The program provides an unrestricted research grant of $100,000 over five years. Of the total amount, $7,500 is 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.
