On July 25, 2022, the John Templeton Foundation launched the Templeton TEX Fellowship Funding Competition, which seeks applicants for theory/experiment cross-training graduate fellowship in fundamental physics, astronomy, or cosmology. The Foundation welcomes applications from outstanding PhD-track graduate students whose research focus is primarily either experimental or theoretical, and who wish to enrich their graduate experience by pursuing one year of research in the complementary “cross discipline” (theory for experimentalists or experiment for theorists).
Each Fellowship will be awarded as a grant to the accredited university or college at which the Fellow is enrolled and employed. Requests of up to $250,000 will be considered, and the total award will be distributed to cover salary support for the Fellow, salary support for the faculty advisor, travel and lodging, cost-of-education expenses, employee benefits, and overhead.
Interested applicants must submit their project ideas via Online Funding Inquiry system. See below a list of key dates for the Templeton TEX Fellowship application and selection process, and visit the Details and Instructions page for more information about the application process.
