Additional comments: The DuPont Young Professor Grant Program is a global program designed to help young faculty members, within five years of full-time appointment, begin their research careers. The hope is that these unrestricted grants will lead to a fruitful relationship beneficial to both parties and could include future research partnerships, student hiring, etc. Professors are nominated by a member of the DuPont technical staff. The nominator serves as the liaison between the company and the faculty member. The DuPont Fellows Forum, which includes the company’s top scientists, selects the award winners each year. During the two-year award, each grant recipient is invited to present a seminar on his or her work to the DuPont research community in Wilmington, Del. The DuPont Young Professor program is administered by the DuPont Center for Collaborative Research & Education. Funding varies annually: about $45,000 over two years. The grants may be used to obtain matching funds through the National Science Foundation or other organizations.
