In 2004 the Hertz Foundation established an endowed Fellowship program that closely links a Hertz Fellow with the donor. These Fellowships can be named for a donor or someone the donor wishes to honor. As recognition to the donor, the Fellows holding these special Fellowships will cite the distinction in their publications during their doctoral studies and will communicate with the donor regarding their research progress.

Help us identify and support the next generation of leaders in applied science and engineering—individuals who will continue to address some of the nation's most serious challenges.
