nohup tcsh (environmental variable)

Is there an environmental variable that can be set so that when I start applications with my shell (espcially ones that I background &) won't get killed when my shell is killed?

I know that there is such a variable in zsh and was hoping there was something I could do in tcsh to do the same thing.

I know there is the "nohup" command but I don't want to have to do that before each command... I would like the "&" to basically background it and tell it to nohup if possible...

Any idea?
