Faculty Fellowships

The David and Lucile Packard Foundation Fellowship for Science and Engineering

The stipend is $875,000 for 5 years

Every year, the Foundation invites the presidents of 50 universities to nominate two professors each from their institutions. The panel then selects 16 Fellows to receive individual awards of $875,000, payable over five consecutive years. Disciplines that are considered include physics, chemistry, mathematics, biology, astronomy, computer science, earth science, ocean science, and all branches of engineering. Faculty members who are well established and well funded are less likely to receive the award.

The AT&T Technology and Environment Awards Program – Connecting Minds for a Sustainable Future

Up to three new contributions of $25,000

For the last 14 years, AT&T has invested globally in research projects that study the intersection of community needs and AT&T’s business interests via the Industrial Ecology Fellowship Program, which this new program replaces. The newly redefined program will continue to fund research at leading universities that pursue advancements in our knowledge of how the environment is impacted by Information and Communications Technology (ICT), especially those products and services in which AT&T is directly involved.

The AT&T Technology and Environment Awards Program is intended to stimulate interdisciplinary research involving environmental issues, engineering, science, economics, management, business, law and public policy issues. Up to three new contributions of $25,000 each will be made in 2010. Applications will be solicited electronically. AT&T will consider proposals from individual or teams of faculty members.
