Next Deadline: April 1, 2013 (5 p.m. CST)
Northwestern University and Argonne National Laboratory invite applications from extraordinary early career scientists who are working collaboratively between the two institutions in energy research.
The awardee will receive a total of $100,000 to be spent over three years. Part of the $100,000 award will be set aside to cover tuition and stipend for a full-time graduate student.
A selection committee with members from the two institutions has been established to review applications.
