2015 UC Santa Cruz Hellman Fellows Program open for proposals from assistant professors

To: UC Santa Cruz faculty

From: Herbert Lee, Vice Provost for Academic Affairs

I am pleased to announce the annual call for applications for the UC Santa Cruz Hellman Fellows Program. We are grateful to the Hellman Family Foundation for providing this funding.

This program provides research support to junior faculty in all fields of study, and can help bridge funding streams between start-up packages and the later flow of competitive external funding. Eligible faculty are those at the rank of assistant professor who have completed two or three years of service at that rank at UC Satna Cruz as of July 1, 2015. Faculty who will be considered for tenure in 2015-16 are not eligible.

Applications are due Monday, February 23, by 5 p.m. and should be emailed to vpaa@ucsc.edu. More information on the program, including application details, is available at: http://academicaffairs.ucsc.edu/hellman/app-process.html.
