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. 

Up to three Faculty members will be selected as 2017 Rose Hills Innovators.  Each will receive discretionary research support of up to $80,000 per year for a maximum of two years. Please review these frequently-asked questions to learn more about the program. 

Applications for the 2017/18 cycle are now closed.  Applications will re-open in 2019.
