Faculty Research Funding
The Grand Challenges Program enables Princeton faculty to refocus their research and teaching to address critical problems in climate and energy, development, and health. To date, the Program has awarded more than $11.6 million funding 42 faculty-led projects to support new directions in their research and teaching and to forge strategic collaborations across disciplinary lines.
Funding priority is given to faculty proposals that demonstrate solid commitments to involving undergraduates in the research enterprise and to expanding the undergraduate curriculum to capture themes emerging from their Grand Challenges work.
Call for proposals typically occur in August and are awarded early in the fall. For additional information, please contact Stacey Christian, Grand Challenge’s business administration manager.
PEI is currently conducting a 2014 Joint Call for Proposals for Innovative Research, Teaching, and Mentorship in Energy and the Environment.
