Joy Geng : Helman Program
October 28, 2010
Thirteen assistant professors are the recipients of research grants totaling $245,000 from the UC Davis Hellman Fellowship Program, as announced recently by Barbara Horwitz, vice provost of Academic Personnel.
The San Francisco-based Hellman Family Foundation has funded the fellowship program annually since 2008, to assist newer faculty members who have promising research plans but lack the stable funding of more established faculty.
"It's an extraordinary opportunity for junior faculty, many of whom will use it as a springboard for future funding," Horwitz said.
