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.
