David Ginger receives Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award

Assistant Professor David Ginger received a 2007 Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award from The Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation. The Dreyfus Foundation was created with the mission to “advance the science of chemistry, chemical engineering and related sciences as a means of improving human relations and circumstances,” and the organization has created several awards for academics in the chemical sciences.
The Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award program supports the research and teaching careers of talented young faculty by providing discretionary funding to faculty who have created a significant body of independent scholarship and demonstrated a commitment to education in their first five years as faculty, signaling the promise of continuing outstanding contributions in both areas. The program provides funding to award recipients through an unrestricted research grant of $75,000 over five years.

Ginger received his Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award for his research project, “Probing Optoelectronic Processes in Nanostructured Organic Solar Cells.”
