The ORAU Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Awards 2018 internal deadline is December 8, 2017 by 4:00 pm to firstname.lastname@example.org. Only two applicants may move forward to submission after FRC review.
The Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Awards provide seed money for research by junior faculty at ORAU member institutions. These awards are intended to enrich the research and professional growth of young faculty and result in new funding opportunities.
Full-time assistant professors at ORAU member institutions within two years of their initial tenure track appointment at the time of application are eligible. If there is a question on eligibility, the ORAU Councilor makes the final decision.
This award can include funds for faculty summer salary, graduate student salary, travel, equipment, or other assistance relevant to the faculty member’s research. ORAU does not allow overhead charges or indirect costs on the award from ORAU or the university match.
Only two W&M applicants may move forward to full proposal submission.
