All applicants are required to provide 75% effort.

The dean or chief academic research officer is invited to nominate one candidate.Scholars will be chosen on the basis of the success in their prior post-doctoral work as well as in the importance and creativity of their continued work. The Foundation expects to make five awards in 2023.
