Dear Colleague Letter - Discovery Corps Fellowships Program
- Updated January 2008
For FY2004-2007, the NSF Division of Chemistry has offered the “Discovery Corps Fellowships Program”, DCF. This pilot program sought new postdoctoral and professional development models that combined research with service-oriented projects.
Due to funding constraints, the Division of Chemistry has decided to not offer the Discovery Corps Fellowships Program in FY2008. We will continue our assessment of this unique program and make decisions about FY2009 at a later date. If offered in FY2009, the DCF Program will likely be refocused to projects that combine chemistry research with dissemination of the value of chemistry to the public.
Director, Division of Chemistry, NSF
