Rose Hills Innovator Program

The Rose Hills Innovator Program supports distinguished early-career faculty at UC Berkeley interested in developing highly innovative research programs in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The program intends to strengthen the efforts of UC Berkeley’s world-class faculty by providing seed support for projects with exceptionally high scientific promise that may generate significant follow-on funding. 

Faculty and/or faculty teams selected as Rose Hills Innovators will receive discretionary research support of up to $90,000 each per year for a maximum of two years.

Applications for the 2020/21 cycle are due on Monday evening March 9, 2020 at 11:59pm.
