This is to announce the opening of the Armstrong Fund for Science Grant competition for 2018. The Armstrong Fund is a prestigious internal competition for seed funding to encourage bold new ideas in science and engineering research in UMA priority research areas. The fund is made possible by UMA supporters John and Elizabeth Armstrong, whose ideas also provide the vision for the award. The selection of the recipients is made by the STEM deans and their delegates.
Funding is available for up to $40,000 total over two years (or $20,000 for one year).
Submissions require a short, three-page proposal, budget, and CVs. Please visit the Armstrong Fund for Science website for the RFP, application forms, and instructions. The RFP is also attached to this email.
The grant application process is as follows:
- Submission deadline: Proposals are due by 5 pm on February 1, 2018
- Awards announced: By March 20, 2018
- Funds disbursed: July or August, 2018
Everyone doing STEM research is eligible. Junior faculty are encouraged to apply, and in fact, have been the most frequent recipients of the award. The award is also open to senior faculty, provided they are pursuing a direction that represents a significant change in focus for their research (and their application should explain in what way it is a departure for them). Team proposals are encouraged and potential for industry engagement is desirable. The list of prior awardees is on the Armstrong Fund for Science website.
Contact Mary Green with any questions about the fund and the application process at firstname.lastname@example.org or 545-8641.
