Faculty: Apply for ACES+ Advance Opportunity Grants to obtain supplemental funding

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.

Submit to ACEScontinues@case.edu by Dec. 14.
