;

  • A computer scientist who creates smartphone applications for disadvantaged populations in developing countries;

  • A mathematician who may be the first to produce reliable 30-day weather forecasts using advanced mathematical models of the atmosphere;

  • An economist who studies the subtle and unsubtle ways health insurers weed the sick out of their risk pools; and

  • A molecular biologist who develops software allowing researchers to easily analyze the huge, unwieldy datasets that are transforming the biological sciences.

    "When you think about great science programs, it is easy to think of the usual institutions," says Dr. Daniel L. Goroff, the Vice President who oversees Sloan's Research Fellowship Program, "but the list of awards shows how many universities are investing in great science and great scientists. North Dakota State University and Claremont McKenna College both received their first ever fellowships this year, for example. Exciting, inspiring science is happening everywhere."

    Awarded in eight scientific and technical fieldschemistry, computer science, economics, mathematics, computational and evolutionary molecular biology, neuroscience, ocean sciences, and physicsthe Sloan Research Fellowships are awarded through close cooperation with the scientific community. Candidates must be nominated by their fellow scientists, and winning fellows are selected by an independent panel of senior scholars on the basis of a candidate's independent research accomplishments, creativity, and potential to become a leader in his or her field. Fellows receive $50,000 to further their research.
