Welcome to the Krell Institute

Since its inception in 1997, the Krell Institute, a 501(c)(3) corporation, has provided technical resources, knowledge and experience in managing technology-based education and information programs, including two of the most successful fellowships offered by a U.S. science agency.

Krell is named after the advanced civilization that once inhabited the planet Altair IV in the classic 1956 science fiction movie “Forbidden Planet.”
