Based on institutional nominations, the program provides discretionary funding to faculty at an early stage in their careers. Criteria for selection include an independent body of scholarship attained within the first five years of their appointment as independent researchers, and a demonstrated commitment to education, signaling the promise of continuing outstanding contributions to both research and teaching. The Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Awards Program provides an unrestricted research grant of $100,000.  Funds are normally expended over a period of five years

Selection: The Foundation seeks Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholars who demonstrate leadership in research and education. Nominations must provide compelling evidence of the advance of important knowledge in the chemical sciences by the nominee. Further, the nomination should describe dedication and contributions to education in the chemical sciences, particularly with respect to undergraduates. Recommendations for awards are based primarily on the nominee's scholarly research achievements as an independent faculty member, as assessed by the Foundation's reviewers and the judgment of the nominee's peers exemplified by letters of recommendation. Other considered factors are: awards and honors, publication of research achievements in leading journals, and success in attracting funding of research.
