The Kavli Foundation is dedicated to advancing science for the benefit of humanity, promoting public understanding of scientific research, and supporting scientists and their work. The Foundation’s mission is implemented through an international program of research institutes, professorships, symposia and other initiatives in the fields of astrophysics, nanoscience, neuroscience and theoretical physics. The Foundation is also a founding partner of the Kavli Prizes, which recognize scientists for their seminal advances in astrophysics, nanoscience and neuroscience.

The Philomathia Foundation proudly supports the Kavli Energy NanoScience Institute. In 2016, we provided funding to help establish the institute. The same year, we also established the Kavli ENSI Philomathia Graduate Student Fellowship. Graduate Fellowships are one-year positions designed to give promising young researchers the opportunity to work across the disciplines of nanoscience to discover new ways in probing and/or controlling energy processes on the nanoscale.

We would like to recognize the most recent Philomathia Graduate Fellows: Stephen (Matt) Gilbert (2018-2019), Justin Ondry (2019-2020), and Trevor Roberts (2019-2020). We encourage you to read more about their work in the Kavli Energy NanoScience Institute (ENSI) 2019 Annual Report.
