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. These grants should enable an already strong group to grow a sustainable program more rapidly than would otherwise have been likely.
Accelerator grants can provide up to $100,000. Budgets should reflect what a team needs to gain a strong start in its target area, so smaller proposals are welcomed. Through funding from the PA Department of Health, we expect one or more awards this year to support research programs related to human health, broadly defined. See the guidelines for details.
