Unsolicited Requests


Unsolicited Requests

ISCE accepts unsolicited proposals from full-time T&R and Research faculty anytime during the fiscal year. Typically such requests range from $2,500 to $7,500 and are for projects that require a rapid response to an event, small feasibility studies, and interdisciplinary team building that will lead to the submission of proposals for external grant awards. Funds do not typically support faculty and/or postdoc stipends. Planned projects as part of an ongoing research agenda should be submitted to RFPs issued by the Institute.  Faculty are encouraged to discuss their ideas with ISCE Director, Karen A Roberto prior to submission.

To apply for funds, please complete this form and submit to Karen A. Roberto. Decisions on funding are usually made within a week of the request.
