The Office of Faculty Development is offering ADVANCE Opportunity Grants. These grants 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.
All faculty members are eligible to receive awards of up to $5,000. The Opportunity Grant Faculty Oversight Committee selects the recipients. Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously received an opportunity grant and junior faculty.
Successful applicants will be notified during the first week in March.
Proposals should be written for a general scientific audience. The deadline to submit a proposal to the Office of Faculty Development at firstname.lastname@example.org has been extended to Dec. 21.
