Receive research funding with ACES+ Opportunity Grants

The Office of Faculty Development is pleased to announce ACES+ Opportunity Grants 2022. 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 or other eligible dependent care to attend a professional meeting or conduct research at another institution.

All faculty members are eligible to apply to ACES+ grants. Budgets of awards are limited to $5,000. The Opportunity Grant Faculty Oversight Committee selects the recipients. Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously received an ACES+ Opportunity grant, and/or also to junior faculty. Proposals should be written for a broad general scientific audience. The application deadline is Dec. 30, 2021. Successful applicants will be notified during the first week in March.
