The Johns Hopkins University President's Frontier Award of $250,000 will be given each year to a faculty member who demonstrates significant scholarly achievement and shows exceptional promise for important future work. The award is being established with a $1.25 million donation from trustee Louis J. Forster, A&S '82, SAIS '83, and Kathleen M. Pike, SAIS Bol '81 (Dipl), A&S '82, '83 (MA).
This award will give a significant boost to faculty members who have the expertise and creativity to become prominent intellectual leaders but need more time, resources, or assistance to develop and share their ideas.
Full-time faculty from all Johns Hopkins schools and campuses will be eligible. One recipient will be named each spring through 2019, and those individuals will be able to use the award for a research sabbatical, lab support, hiring of assistants, travel, publication of findings, or other purposes that advance their academic pursuits. Each recipient will give a public lecture at the conclusion of the award year.
Nominations are due Nov. 10. Information is online.
