The purpose of The Bernard Lewis Endowment Fund is to undertake or seed projects that will promote education and encourage research in combustion.

In addition to the Bernard Lewis Fellowship for young scientists to attend the biennial combustion symposia, there will be, starting with the 30th Symposium, an additional new program:

The Bernard Lewis Visiting Lecturer Fellowship.

Its aim is to financially assist the member sections of the Combustion Institute to invite renowned colleagues from outside their sections to deliver a series of lectures at their sectional meetings as well as organizations in their section. The Fellowship would typically consist of an honorarium and the travel expense to the section. The host section is expected to cover all the local expenses. Proposals by sections from Third World countries are particularly encouraged.

The proposal should consist of the following:

  • The lecturer, including his/her affiliation, position and a current CV.
  • A list of the most important publications and accomplishments within the last 3 years (restricted to 2 pages)
  • The lecturing period (minimum one week), location, the local host and the number and titles of the lectures.
  • A letter by the section chairperson which describes what the section hopes to accomplish in bringing in this lecturer.  It should also include a budget for the local expenses and a statement that these expenses will be covered by the host section.
  • An estimate for the round-trip travel expense to the section.
The section chairperson should send one (1) copy by June 1st 2004 to each of the following:
