Energy Boost Seed Grant submissions open

Faculty interested in funding through the Energy Boost Seed Grant program may provide submissions. The program offers competitive, peer-reviewed grants that make available initial support for new, long-term programs of collaborative interdisciplinary research relating to advanced coal and energy that will have a strong potential to attract external funding.

Proposals are due by Jan. 8, 2016. Faculty may request up to $50,000 for projects of one-year duration or less. Winners will be announced April 6, 2016 at the SIU Energy Day, and projects will start July 1, 2016. Program and application information is available here.  Follow @SIUEnergy on Twitter or joined the SIU Energy Group on LinkedIn to stay up-to-date on Advanced Coal and Energy Research Center announcements. The university’s online home for energy education and research is energy.siu.edu/.
