This month, the U.S. Department of Defense announced that Stanford faculty members Mark Schnitzer and Jelena Vučković are among the nine faculty scientists and engineers selected as the 2022 Class of Vannevar Bush Faculty Fellows.

This fellowship focuses on advancing transformative, university-based fundamental research, with each fellow receiving up to $3 million over five years. These are “the department’s most prestigious research grant awards,” according to the fellowship’s program director, Dr. Jean-Luc Cambier.
