LHC Theory Initiative - Welcome


The LHC-TI Story

The LHC Theory Initiative is a fellowship program intended to help the US meet the theoretical needs of the LHC by providing graduate student and postdoctoral fellowships to promising young theorists working on LHC-related physics. The program was created by the U.S. particle theory community in anticipation of the data to come from the Large Hadron Collider. The case was laid out in a 2005 White Paper. More can be found at the archival website for the program.
