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 an 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 $85,000 each per year for a maximum of two years.

Applications for the 2021/22 cycle were due on Monday, March 8, 2021 at 11:59 pm.
