Apply for supplemental support for proposed projects and activities

All faculty members are eligible to apply to ACES+ Opportunity Grants, which provide small amounts of supplemental support for current or proposed projects and activities where 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; and
  • Child care or other eligible dependent care to attend a professional meeting or conduct research at another institution.

Budgets of awards are limited to $5,000. The Opportunity Grant Faculty Oversight Committee selects the recipients. Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously received an ACES+ Opportunity Grant, and/or to junior faculty. Proposals should be written for a broad general scientific audience. The deadline to submit a proposal is Dec. 30.

Complete the application.

Successful applicants will be notified during the first week in March.Send inquiries regarding ACES+ Opportunity Grants to facdev@case.edu.
