Sixteen UC professors have received prestigious 2023 Guggenheim fellowships, an honor that recognizes talented mid-career faculty who have shown exceptional creativity and scholarship in their work and exhibit great promise for their future endeavors.
The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation awards the fellowships, along with grants of varying amounts, to “further the development of scholars and artists by assisting them to engage in research in any field of knowledge and creation in any of the arts, under the freest possible conditions,” the foundation said in its announcement.
In all, 171 scientists, writers, scholars, and artists were awarded Guggenheim fellowships this year across 48 fields, including 16 UC faculty from eight campuses.
