Apply for ACES Opportunity Grants to receive supplemental support

Faculty members can apply for ACES Opportunity Grants through the Office of Faculty Development. These grants provide small amounts of supplemental support for current or proposed projects and activities for which funding is difficult to obtain through other sources.

Examples of funding support include:

  • Seed funding for unusual research opportunities or training;
  • Grants to support writing of books;
  • Travel grants to explore new techniques or attend advanced training courses (dependent on current CWRU Travel Policy); and
  • Child care to attend a professional meeting or conduct research at another institution.

All faculty members are eligible to receive awards of up to $5,000. The Opportunity Grant Faculty Oversight Committee selects the recipients. Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously received an opportunity grant and junior faculty.

The application deadline is Friday, Dec. 4. Successful applicants will be notified during the first week in March. Proposals should be written for a general scientific audience.
