  Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Awards Program

In 1969 the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation established the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Awards Program to support the teaching and research careers of talented young faculty in the chemical sciences. Based on institutional nominations, the program was designed to provide discretionary funding to faculty at early stages in their careers. Criteria for selection included an independent body of scholarship and a commitment to education that signaled the promise of continuing outstanding contributions to both research and teaching.

The Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Awards Program is based on accomplishments in scholarly research with undergraduates, as well as a compelling commitment to teaching but the reference is with respect to primarily undergraduate institutions.

Nominees must hold a full-time tenure-track academic appointment, be between the fourth and twelfth years of their independent academic careers, and engage in research and teaching primarily with undergraduates. Awardees are typically in departments that do not grant a doctoral degree.

USC may submit only one Henry Dreyfus nomination annually. Your nomination MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research. Please submit a two-page abstract to Richard White via email ( by January 7, 2014 for an internal competition.

A completed application is due by February 10, 2014. For more information:
