Faculty members are invited to apply for ACES+ Advance Opportunity 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
All faculty members are eligible. A Faculty Oversight Committee chooses the recipients.
Proposals should include a single page statement of objectives, brief statement of project or activity and supporting information, if any. A single page budget with justification and current CV (2-4 Page NSF/NIH style biographical sketch) should also be submitted. Proposals are to be written for a general audience and should be submitted to Helen Day via e-mail at email@example.com by Dec. 15.
