Faculty: Apply for Advance Opportunity Grants by Dec. 6

ACES+, the continuation of the NSF-ADVANCE Award, will offer 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; and
  • 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, and successful applicants will receive notice the first week in March.

Applications should be completed and submitted by Dec. 6. Apply now.
