The Center for Science, Technology, and Society (CSTS) is launching a grant program for both faculty and students with awards up to $5,000 for faculty, up to $2,000 for individual student investigators, and up to $3,000 for student teams. The deadline for proposal submissions is Friday, Oct. 30.
CSTS is inaugurating a competition for funding to support projects that are commensurate with its mission, “to understand and enable the innovative application of science and technology for global human benefit.”
Examples of the areas of interest to the center include, but are not restricted to:
- Investigation of the interfaces between science, technology, and society;
- Research, development, or application of science and technology for social benefit with particular interest in sustainable, clean technologies.
Jack Gilbert, professor and chair of the chemistry and biochemistry departments at SCU, as well as director of research initiatives at the center, and Craig Stephens, associate professor of biology and director of education at the center, established the grant program.
Applicants should submit their applications to Erin Berkenmeier by 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 30. Applications must be submitted in PDF format. Click here for more information and to download the application form.
