UC Davis Society of Hellman Fellows

The Hellman Family Foundation has contributed funds to continue the UC Davis Hellman Fellows Program to promote the scholarly growth of faculty members at the Assistant Professor rank who exhibit the potential for great academic distinction, and for whom Hellman funding can significantly stimulate productivity in research and other creative scholarly activities. A major goal for the program is to enhance the progress of faculty participants towards tenure.
