Innovation Grant 2015
Faculty at all career levels are eligible to apply for the College’s Innovation Grant. The deadline for application is June 1, 2015 for funding scheduled to begin in August, FY2016. Please note that this is not a grant that can be used for bridge funding, continuation or expansion of current research. The work proposal has to be truly pioneering and have high potential for being transformative. As this is to fund research considered to be of high risk, success will be measured in terms of either proving or disproving the idea being researched. Complete details and application instructions are available here.
