Scialog®

About the Program

Scialog® supports research, intensive dialog and community building to address scientific challenges of global significance.

Within each multi-year initiative, Scialog Fellows collaborate in high-risk discovery research on untested ideas and communicate their progress in annual closed conferences. Intensive discussions identify bottlenecks and encourage innovative approaches.

Ultimately Scialog aims to advance human knowledge by empowering a national community of early career scientists with many promising years of research ahead of them. Through the give-and-take of community building, it is the Foundation’s hope that Scialog Fellows grow better equipped to tackle ever more challenging multidisciplinary problems. Success for Scialog Fellows is measured by highly impactful results, ongoing support from private foundations and federal agencies, and, ultimately, scientific breakthroughs in their ongoing lines of research.

The Scialog process is guided by senior scientists recognized as world-leading researchers in the area of focus.

At a glance: Scialog is intended to: 1) support early career faculty to expand research in a focused area of high scientific importance; 2) encourage scientists to form multidisciplinary teams to tackle these critical challenges, and; 3) help transition awardees to obtain further funding for their innovative ideas.
