Star Family Challenge for Promising Scientific Research

The most recent deadline for the Star Family Challenge was February 28, 2018. More information on the next competition will be available in early 2019 for the anticipated February 2019 deadline.

The Star Family Challenge for Promising Scientific Research is open to FAS and SEAS faculty. Once a year, a selection committee of faculty members from multiple disciplines will choose projects (up to a maximum of five annually) for awards ranging in size from $20,000 to $200,000. This program supports high-risk, high-impact projects in the natural and social sciences with an interdisciplinary focus. Joint submissions by researchers from the FAS and other parts of the University are welcome but the lead investigator on the application must hold a faculty appointment in FAS or SEAS.

Please visit the FAS Research Administration Services website for additional information about this program.
