The Cottrell Scholar (CS) program champions the very best early career teacher-scholars in chemistry, physics, and astronomy by providing significant discretionary awards for research. Nurturing an interdisciplinary community of outstanding scientific/educational/academic leaders, the CS program fosters synergy among faculty at major U.S. and Canadian research universities and primarily undergraduate institutions. Cottrell Scholars engage in an annual networking event, providing them an opportunity to share insights and expertise through the Cottrell Scholar Collaborative. Outstanding candidates are admitted to the ranks of Cottrell Scholars through a stringent peer-review process based on their innovative research proposals and educational programs.
As Scholars progress in their academic careers, the CS program supports them with a number of competitive Cottrell Plus awards. Post-tenure Cottrell Scholars may compete for the prestigious Cottrell FRED Award supporting early stage, potentially transformative research.
The Cottrell Scholar program fosters an environment for listening and considering new ideas from a diverse group, with respect for all participants without regard to gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, or any other aspect of how we identify ourselves other than as fellow scientists
