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.
The deadline for applications is 5pm on February 28, 2018. Please visit the FAS Research Administration Services website for additional information about this program.
