Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholars

We are soliciting internal letters of intent from investigators or teams of investigators looking to submit proposals to the Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar program. As an institution we may submit one proposal for this limited submission competition.

The Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Awards Program is open to academic institutions in the States, Disctricts, and Terriortires of the United States of America that grant a bachelor’s or master’s degree in the chemical sciences, including biochemistry, materials chemistry, and chemical engineering. Awardees are typically in departments that do not grant a doctoral degree. Nominees must hold a full-time tenure-track academic appointment, be after the fourth and and not after the twelfth years of their independent academic careers, and be engaged in research and teaching primarily with undergraduates.

A full description of the Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award program may be found on the Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Awards Program website.

Faculty members or teams of investigators interested in submitting a Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award proposal must first submit an internal mandatory letter of intent to the Office of Research. Letters of intent should be no more than one page and identify the project scope, principal investigators, collaborators, and partner organizations. Along with the LOI, provide a one page project description, and CVs or bioketches for all PI’s and Co-PI’s.

Internal letters of intent must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. March 13, 2015 as a word or pdf document to, with Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award and the last name of the lead PI(s) in the subject line.

If the Office of Research receives more than one letter of intent, we will run an internal competition using the letters of intent and supplemental materials to determine the project that will move forward with full submission to the Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar program by May 18, 2015. Anyone who does not submit a letter of intent to the Office of Research will not be permitted to submit a full proposal to the program.
