Accelerating progress in scientific research, environmental conservation and patient care

Gordon Moore is one of the most celebrated scientists and inventors of our time. To honor our visionary founder, we created the Moore Inventor Fellows to nurture the next generation of scientists and inventors. With the creation of the fellowship, we hope to encourage breakthroughs that accelerate progress for the next 50 years.

The Moore Inventor Fellowship supports scientist-inventors who create new tools and technologies with a high potential to accelerate progress in the foundation’s areas of interest: scientific discovery, environmental conservation and patient care.

The foundation will allocate a total of nearly $34 million through 2026 to support 50 Moore Inventor Fellows – five fellows per year for ten years, beginning in 2016.

Each fellow receives a total of $825,000 over three years to drive their invention forward, which includes $50,000 per year from their home institution as a commitment to these outstanding individuals.

Starting September 15, 2021, we will be soliciting nominations for the 2022 Moore Inventor Fellows competition from eligible institutions. Please fill out online submission form by October 4, 2021 with contact information for the person submitting nominations on behalf of your institution. Name of the nominee(s) are due November 12, 2021, and final applications are due December 13, 2021.
