Frederick A. Howes Scholar Award

Krell Institute

A DOE CSGF fellow is eligible to be named the Howes Scholar if he or she has completed all the requirements for his or her Ph.D. between January 1 and December 31 of the nomination year. He or she must have done this either while being supported by the DOE CSGF program or having previously been supported by the fellowship for the maximum number of allowed years. Nominations are accepted in the fall of each year and awards are announced the following spring.

Nominators are solicited for all eligible fellows and alumni and are encouraged to submit their letter of support for a particular individual. It is important that the letter signify the nominee’s leadership and character as well as his or her technical achievements, as equal weight will be placed on all components when reviewing the nomination. Nominations must be accompanied by the names and contact information of at least two other people familiar with the candidate's accomplishments. The Krell Institute will then contact those individuals to request a letter of recommendation. Supporting material should be sent to the Krell Institute in care of the Howes Scholar Nomination.
