Weinberg Family Postdoctoral Fellowships
Made possible through a gift from the family of Judd A. Weinberg, the Weinberg Family Postdoctoral Fellowship is awarded annually and includes a $75,000 stipend and travel funds to attend scholarly meetings.
Recipients of the fellowship are postdoctoral scholars within Northwestern University’s Weinberg College of Arts & Sciences. Responsible for the names of both the College and the fellowship, Judd A. and Marjorie Weinberg were both alumni and among the University’s most generous benefactors. Judd Weinberg died in February at the age of 93. David B. Weinberg, their son and the chairman and CEO of Judd Enterprises, serves on the Executive Council of the IIN.
“The Weinberg family has a remarkable legacy of training, motivating and empowering the next generation of leaders,” said Chad Mirkin, IIN Director. “With this fellowship, they are reaching young scientists at a stage when they are beginning to realize their potential and make important, original contributions to their fields. In many ways, it’s the moment in their careers when this kind of support matters the most.”
