Registered Charity No. 1202856


The Lindemann Trust is one of the leading sponsors of brilliant young scientists in the world today. On behalf of the ESU of the Commonwealth, the Lindemann Fellowship Administrative Trust serves to advance and sponsor the early careers and postdoctoral work of the greatest scientists of tomorrow and to promote wider public understanding of their pioneering research.



The Lindemann Trust offers 2-year fellowships, each worth $65,000 a year, for postdoctoral scientists to carry out research at a host institution in the USA. The Lindemann Trust Fellowships are designed as an early post-doctoral opportunity, and are awarded to graduates of exceptional promise in both the pure and applied physical sciences, who have shown capacity for producing original research. The subject areas eligible are defined broadly to include all areas of the physical sciences and mathematics, as well as their interfaces with the life sciences.

The Trust inspires and excites new generations, from primary school children onwards, in the findings of the most important and innovative science of today. Many of our distinguished Lindemann alumni offer exciting presentations designed to enthuse young audiences.
