Center for International Security and Cooperation (CISAC) faculty member Professor Gabrielle Hecht has been appointed as a 2023 Guggenheim Fellow for her exceptional work in History of Science, Technology, & Economics.

The Guggenheim Fellowships have been awarded annually since 1925 by the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation to those “who have demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship” in the social sciences, the natural sciences, the humanities, and the creative arts. The program has a long-standing history of supporting individuals who have gone on to be Nobel Laureates, members of all the national academies, winners of the Pulitzer Prize, Fields Medal, Turing Award, Bancroft Prize, National Book Award, and other internationally recognized honors. 

From an applicant pool of almost 2,500, 171 scientists, writers, scholars, and artists across 48 fields have been selected. The fellowship program provides each recipient with financial support for a period of six to twelve months, “under the freest possible conditions and irrespective of race, color, or creed.”

In addition to financial support, the fellowship provides recipients with the opportunity to join a community of 18,000 past and current fellows and the opportunity to participate in events and activities designed to promote cross-disciplinary collaboration and learning.
