    David and Lucile Packard Fellowships for Science and Engineering

    Early-career faculty are invited to a conversation on the Packard Foundation’s fellowships in physics, chemistry, mathematics, biology, astronomy, computer science, earth science, ocean science, and all branches of engineering. Previous Packard Fellows will highlight their successful experiences and answer questions. Packard is a limited submission program, which means RIO administers an internal campus competition to determine the applicant(s) that will submit proposals to Packard. This workshop will be a great opportunity to learn what goes into a winning proposal in advance of the internal competition deadline of December 4.
