2020 SyracuseCoE Faculty Fellows Request for Proposals Now Open
SyracuseCoE is accepting applications for the 2020 Faculty Fellows program, which provides up to $20,000 in seed funding for research in SyracuseCoE’s core technical areas of clean and renewable energy, indoor environmental quality and water resources. Select previous projects are highlighted on the SyracuseCoE website. The deadline to apply is Jan. 6, 2020.
The goal of the Faculty Fellows program is to promote new research that will lead to future opportunities, including funding from federal agencies or commercial sources. The program began in 2015 and has supported 49 researchers and approximately $684,000 in project funding. Successful applicants are appointed to a three-year term as a SyracuseCoE Faculty Fellow and have opportunities to engage with cross-disciplinary faculty or industry members.
The Faculty Fellows Program is open to full-time faculty members at SyracuseCoE’s current academic partner institutions: Syracuse University, SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF) and SUNY Oswego. Projects with single faculty applicants may request up to $10,000 and projects that engage multiple faculty up to $20,000. All proposals must address how the funding will lead to a significant “next step” in their research and lead to or leverage follow-on funding opportunities. Research projects that strategically target cross-disciplinary collaboration, student engagement or economic development are encouraged.
SyracuseCoE is a designated New York State Center of Excellence and a unit of Syracuse University’s Office of Research. Awards under the Faculty Fellows program are made possible by funding from Empire State Development’s Division of Science, Technology and Innovation (NYSTAR).
