Guidelines for Accelerator grant applications for Fall 2014 are here.
Accelerator grants support teams of Lehigh investigators in developing multi-investigator research programs in particularly promising areas. Based on a team’s identification of a major, specific area of opportunity and ways in which it can excel in that area, these grants provide significant flexibility in use of the grant funds. Teams are expected to use these grants to broaden and quicken their access to sources of outside support that will enable them to sustain highly productive multi-investigator programs.

Guidelines for Faculty Research Grant (FRG) applications for Fall 2014 are available here.
For returning applicants, guidelines are the same as last year.

Applications are due on October 10.
The purpose of this blog is to connect faculty, staff, and students to developments of the research landscape both within Lehigh and beyond. Our vision is to contribute to a healthy academic environment for original scholarship characterized by rich exchange among disciplines. As such, we are continually looking at ways to better support the Lehigh community and share the many resources and lessons we’ve collected along the way. This blog will be sharing everything from learnings gained through conference attendance to perspectives on team building to … well, we’ll see where this takes us. The takeaway is that this is a space to share, and we hope through our writing and linking we can continue to support that mission of rich disciplinary and interdisciplinary exchange and research.
