The National Science Foundation (NSF) and Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) are pleased to announce that they will sponsor a maximum of 20 young researchers to attend the 2nd annual Heidelberg Laureate Forum in Heidelberg, Germany, from September 21 through 26, 2014.
All nominations must be submitted before Monday, March 3, 2014 at 12:00 pm, Eastern Time. Further information about the program, including the Web site for submission of nominations, can be found online.
Specific eligibility criteria and a nomination form may be found on our web site: http://www.orau.org/hlf.
All applicants to the U.S. delegation must also apply to attend to the HLF Foundation at http://www.heidelberg-laureate-forum.org/call-for-application.
The first Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF) was held in 2013 bringing together winners of the Fields Medal, Abel Prize, Turing Award, and Rolf Nevanlinna Prize with young researchers in Heidelberg, Germany on the campus of the University of Heidelberg. It is anticipated that about 200 young researchers from around the world will attend the weeklong meeting in 2014. There are formal lectures in the morning, and the remainder of the day is set aside for the young researchers to meet informally with the Laureate scientists, as well as with their peers from around the world.
U.S. delegation members will receive all business-related expenses to attend the HLF along with some additional benefits. We are seeking applicants from U.S. institutions and meet the criteria set forth by ORAU and HLF. We are especially interested in receiving nominations from a diverse group of students, including women, minorities and people with disabilities.If you have any questions or need further information, contact:
