Graduate Fellowships

The Linus Pauling Institute sponsors graduate students who have chosen to pursue a Ph.D. degree at Oregon State University through research work in one of the Institute's laboratories. The Fellowships—two years each—are funded by donations from individuals, corporations, and private foundations.

Fellowships consist of:

  • Full tuition and stipend
  • Sponsored travel to attend two scientific conferences relevant to the Fellow's work
  • A two-week residency at Oregon State University's Valley Library Special Collections to study the Ava Helen and Linus Pauling Papers
  • Publication of a research article in the Institute's Research Newsletter

Sabbatical Residencies

The Linus Pauling Institute hosts scholars at the Institute for several months. These scientists come from around the world to conduct research in the Institute's laboratories and collaborate with scientists at LPI and Oregon State University.

The Linus Pauling Institute Prize for Health Research

This Prize, awarded biennially, consists of a substantial monetary award and a bronze medal. It has been awarded to Drs. Bruce Ames (UC-Berkeley), Walter Willett (Harvard), Paul Talalay (Johns Hopkins), Mark Levine (NIH), Michael Holick (Boston University), Connie Weaver (Purdue), and Helmut Sies (Heinrich-Heine-University). The purpose of the Prize is to encourage and recognize excellence in research relating to the roles of micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) and phytochemicals in optimum health. The Prize recognizes scientists who have made seminal contributions to our knowledge and understanding of the role of diet and its constituents in the prevention or treatment of human disease.
