In 1988, the Packard Foundation established the Packard Fellowships for Science and Engineering to allow the nation’s most promising professors to pursue science and engineering research early in their careers with few funding restrictions and limited reporting requirements. It provides individual grants of $875,000 for 5 years. The program arose out of David Packard’s commitment to strengthening university-based science and engineering programs in recognition that the success of the Hewlett-Packard Company, which he cofounded, derived in large measure from the research and development in university laboratories.
This is the UM internal deadline for nominations. The Schmidt Science Fellows program aims to equip the next generation of leaders and innovators with the tools and opportunities to drive world-changing advances across the sciences and society by giving them a year of scientific broadening between their PhD and the start of their research career. In partnership with the Rhodes Trust and elite academic institutions from across the globe, we aim to assemble a diverse array of Fellows who have recently completed PhDs in the sciences and engineering, and challenge them to expand their scientific and societal horizons.
