Energy Institute logoFORT COLLINS - The Energy Institute at Colorado State University announced it will provide up to $90,000 to support campus-based research activities and programs related to energy.

Activities funded through EI must address an important area of energy, including but not limited to biofuels, smart grids, energy storage, solar, wind, energy efficiency, energy policy and energy education, CSU said.

The university said all proposals must address how the use of the EI funds will lead to a significant "next step" in research.

The selected proposals will also enhance CSU's energy capabilities to increase national and international recognition of CSU as a world leader in energy research and its application.

Project work must be initiated within 12 months of the award or funds will be forfeited.

Submission of proposals is restricted to CSU employees, but external collaborators are allowed.

Grant proposals must be submitted by midnight (MST) on Dec. 13. Seed grant proposals will be reviewed for their potential to enhance the goals of the EI, as well as to assess technical and programmatic merit, CSU said.

Lead investigators for proposals selected for funding will be notified by March 1.

For more information, contact Dr. Meghan Suter, EI's complex grants coordinator, 617-957-1124 or [email protected]; or Dr. Ken Reardon, professor and EI co-director, 970-491-6505 or [email protected].
