"Established by Warren & Chris Hellman and their children in 1994, the purpose of the Hellman Fellows Program is to support the research of promising assistant professors who show capacity for great distinction in their chosen fields of endeavor. The Hellman Fellows Program makes grants to research institutions to support junior faculty research on individual campuses. The program institution is responsible for selecting the awardees. The Hellman Fellows Awards are open to a broad reach of academic disciplines, including the arts, humanities, and social sciences, sciences and engineering." — Hellman Fellows Fund
