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 nomination should describe dedication and contributions to education in the chemical sciences, particularly with respect to undergraduates. 

Recommendations for awards are based primarily on the nominee's scholarly research achievements as an independent faculty member.  Other considered factors are: awards and honors, publication of research achievements in leading journals, and success in attracting funding of research.  Nominees must hold a full-time tenure-track academic appointment, and are normally expected to have been appointed no earlier than mid-year 2012.  The Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award provides a $75,000 unrestricted research grant to be expended over a period of five years.  Indirect costs are not allowed.  Funds are normally expended over a period of five years.
