The fellows, who are all U.S. citizens, were chosen for their potential for becoming faculty members at research universities. Each fellow has a faculty mentor who serves as research advisor and provides career guidance. Both the President's and Chancellor's awards provide a stipend, health insurance, and research and travel expenses. Funding for the President's Fellowships is provided by the Office of the President and for the Chancellor's Fellowships by the chancellor and the senior vice chancellor-academic affairs. The administration of both programs is coordinated by Acting Vice Chancellor of Research David Sworder's office. To apply for both awards, candidates should apply to the University of California President's Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. Applicants for the President's Fellowship who designate a UCSD faculty member as their mentor will automatically be considered for the UCSD Chancellor's Fellowship.
Applications may be obtained from Greg Llacer in the Office of Graduate Studies and Research (x43556, gllacer@ucsd), or from the President's Fellowship Program, Office of the President, University of California, 300 Lakeside Drive, Oakland, CA 94612-3550; attention: Jane Gonzalez, coordinator. Telephone (510) 987-9503. The deadline for submission of applications is DECEMBER 1, 1996.
