Participants in the program receive:

  • A two year fellowship, including a cash stipend, health insurance, and travel funds
  • Access to world-class research facilities and expertise at Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley, along with $100k of project funds and control of IP
  • A program of intensive entrepreneurial training, mentorship, and networking to enable you to build a viable business.

The program’s goal is simple: allow innovators to mature their ideas until they can align with the most suitable commercial partners to take their technology to scale. Since 2015, Cyclotron Road has awarded more than $15 million directly to 41 fellows, who have gone on to generate more than $75 million in early-stage funding to support their projects. Interested applicants are encouraged to register to apply at
