Faculty: Apply for 2014 ACES+ Advance Opportunity Grant; deadline Dec. 13

Through the support of President Barbara R. Snyder and Provost Bud Baeslack, ACES+—the continuation of the NSF-ADVANCE Award ACES—offers Advance Opportunity Grants.

All faculty members are eligible to apply for these 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
  • Child care to attend a professional meeting or conduct research at another institution

The Opportunity Grant Faculty Oversight Committee selects the recipients.

Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously received an opportunity grant.

Proposals are to be written for a general scientific audience and should include:

  1. An application
  2. A single-page statement of objectives, brief statement of project or activity and supporting information and documentation, if applicable
  3. A single-page budget justification
  4. A current CV (two to four pages; National Science Foundation/National Institutes of Health-style biographical sketch)

All items should be submitted in a single PDF file to the Office of the Provost via email at DeputyProvost@case.edu by Dec. 13.

More information on the grants as well as the application process can be found on the ACES website.
