Since 1998, Baruch College has been the recipient of a grant from the Eugene M. Lang Foundation. The grant supported research fellowships for Baruch’s Junior Faculty. The successes of the program led to ongoing generous support from The Eugene M. Lang Foundation beginning in 2008.
Mr. Lang created the Junior Faculty Research Fellowship Program as an investment in faculty who are at early career stages, face challenges obtaining external support, and realize the importance of completed and published research to achieve tenure and promotion. Since 2008, there have been 54 Fellowship recipients from across all disciplines. Awardees attest to the positive difference that the Fellowships have made in the quality and scope of their research. Many have expanded their projects into federally supported grants which continue to advance the field and provide research experiences for undergraduates.
