Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholars

Drexel University may nominate one candidate for the Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Awards Program. The Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award provides a $60,000 unrestricted research grant. Of the total amount, $5,000 is to be allocated for departmental expenses associated with research and education.

The Foundation seeks Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholars who, as independent faculty members, have demonstrated leadership in original scholarly research of outstanding quality, substantially with undergraduates, as well as excellence and dedication in undergraduate education. 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 not after the twelfth years of their independent academic careers, and be engaged in research and teaching primarily with undergraduates.

Internal applications due no later than 11:59 pm, April 25, 2014. Full applications due to the Foundation by 4:30 PM May 19, 2014.

See more information regarding the foundation and program on the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation website.
