Faculty members with seed grant projects should consider applying to the Climate Change Solutions Fund. Sponsored by the Office of the Vice Provost for Research, this program supports research and policy initiatives intended to hasten the transition from carbon-based energy systems to those that rely on renewable energy sources; to develop methods for diminishing the impact of existing carbon-based energy systems on the climate; and to propel scientific, technological, legal, policy, and artistic innovations needed to accelerate progress toward cleaner energy and a greener world.
HUCE recognizes that the need still exists for smaller grants to faculty to fund special research opportunities, especially those that are risky or with time horizons too short for traditional outside funders. In such cases, faculty should send a short note to HUCE Managing Director Jim Clem, outlining the opportunity and funding required. HUCE will consider all requests on an ad hoc basis.
For questions about the grants, please contact Jim Clem.
