Cottrell Scholar Award

Research Corporation for Science Advancement
External Deadline:
Opportunity Information:

The Research Corporation for Science Advancement seeks to advance early-stage, high-potential, basic scientific research.

The organization invites applications for its Cottrell Scholar Award program, which supports tenure-track faculty who hold primary or courtesy appointments in chemistry, physics, or astronomy departments that offer bachelor’s and/or graduate degrees in the applicant’s discipline.

The award is available to early-career faculty at United States and Canadian research universities and primarily undergraduate institutions. Cottrell Scholar Awards are for three-year projects in the amount of $120,000 for the entire project. CSA funds may be used in support of both the educational and research projects of the Cottrell Scholar.

For the 2024 proposal cycle, eligibility is limited to faculty members who started their first tenure-track appointment anytime in the calendar year 2021. Accommodations are made for faculty who have taken maternity or paternity leave or experienced medical conditions or research delays that prompted a tenure clock extension.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Research Corporation for Science Advancement website.
