Sydney Brenner Research Scholarship

Sydney Brenner Scholarship 600

The Sydney Brenner Research Scholarship awards funding each year to scholars, historians and writers who study the history of cancer, women in science, molecular biology, genetics, neuroscience, plant biology, the intersection of biology and physics, and other topics relating to the molecular biology revolution.

Deadline: December 31, of each year.

The scholarship was initiated by a student and protégé of Nobel Laureate Sydney Brenner, Dr. Philip Goelet, who wished to pay tribute to his mentor. Endowed by the Francis Goelet Charitable Trust in 2006, this scholarship offers a stipend of up to $10,000 to fund travel and other expenses associated with working on the project, including use of the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Archives collections and sources at other locations.

In the CSHL Archives collections, scholars can find unique original materials on some of the most important themes and figures in biology.


Please see the full description of the collections at the CSHL Archives page.
