Opportunities are available not only for college and university faculty and administrators but also for professionals from business and government, as well as artists, journalists, scientists, lawyers, independent scholars and many others. There are awards in 45 different fields or disciplines, and a variety of sub-disciplines and interdisciplinary fields.
