The Foundation seeks Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholars who demonstrate leadership in research and education. Nominations must provide compelling evidence of the advance of important knowledge in the chemical sciences by the nominee. Further, the nominee will be assessed with respect to dedication, contributions, and innovations in education in the chemical sciences.

Recommendations for awards are based primarily on the nominee's achievements as an independent faculty member as assessed by the Foundation's reviewers and the judgment of the nominee's peers exemplified by letters of recommendation. Other considered factors are: awards and honors, publication of research achievements in leading journals; and success in attracting funding of research. Consideration is also be given to evidence of dedication to educational activities (classroom and research) involving undergraduates.

The Board of Directors of the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation is enthusiastic about providing support for faculty at the earlier stages of their academic career. The competition this year was very strong and it is a great honor to receive this recognition.
