Faculty members are encouraged to apply for ACES+ Advance Opportunity Grants, which will provide 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
Child care to attend a professional meeting or conduct research at another institution
All faculty members are eligible, and members of a Faculty Oversight Committee choose the recipients.
Applications of no more than one page should include a statement of objectives, a brief description of the project or activity, budget justification and supporting information, if any. A current CV (a two- to four-page NSF/NIH biographical sketch) also should be submitted. Proposals are to be written for a general scientific audience.
