Scialog® Fellow

Scialog (science dialogue) conferences bring together about 50 Fellows (faculty from their first year through soon after tenure) and about 10 Facilitators (senior faculty who guide the discussions) over 3 1/2 days, with the goal of launching innovative, collaborative, interdisciplinary projects supported with one-year grants of $50,000 USD per Fellow in each funded term. Fellows are typically invited to participate approximately 6 months in advance of the meeting. Late nominations will be considered if space is available or if there is a cancellation. See agency website for upcoming intiatives.

Eligibility:  Fellows are early career faculty at universities and colleges in the United States and Canada, with “early career” defined as anytime from just joining an institution as a beginning assistant professor through one- or two-years post-tenure.  Scientists at research institutes, museums, and similar organizations will also be considered if they are early career and are independent investigators overseeing their own research groups.

Internal process: Please contact for assistance with a nomination of an early-career faculty member for the Fellowship, or to recommend a senior faculty member to serve as a Facilitator.
