Candidates for these fellowships must display superb ability in scientific or engineering research, and must show definite promise of becoming outstanding leaders in the research they pursue. Fellowships are awarded for a two-year term with a possible renewal for a third year and carry a stipend of $80,000 per annum with an additional allocation of up to $20,000 per annum for research support and travel.
