2017 Faculty Fellows Program Request for Proposals


Applications are due by 11:59 pm on Sunday, October 2, 2016. It is anticipated that announcement of awards will be made in late October 2016.


SyracuseCoE invites applications for its 2017 Faculty Fellows Program to strengthen faculty scholarship in SyracuseCoE research areas, support SyracuseCoE engagements with industry partners, and provide research leadership to SyracuseCoE core technical areas. Individuals who hold faculty appointments at Syracuse University, and SyracuseCoE partner institutions SUNY Upstate Medical University (UMU) and SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF) are eligible to apply.

As part of the 2017 Faculty Fellows Program, SyracuseCoE is issuing this Request for Proposals (RFP) to support research in our core focus areas:

  • Clean and renewable energy
  • Indoor environmental quality
  • Water resources

Proposals are intended to support new research efforts and directions that advance SyracuseCoE’s research goals, rather than incremental steps forward on existing research programs. All proposals must address how the use of the Faculty Fellow funds will lead to a significant “next step” in the research, lead to or leverage follow-on funding opportunities, and contribute to establishing the Syracuse University and SyracuseCoE partner institutions as thought leaders in the targeted area.


The 2017 Faculty Fellows Program RFP is open to faculty at SyracuseCoE Academic Partners: Syracuse University, SUNY-ESF, and UMU. Individuals who hold appointments as tenured, tenure-track, temporary-term, and research faculty are eligible to apply. SyracuseCoE strongly encourages proposals to include the participation of multiple faculty members, including teams from multiple departments, colleges, and/or institutions. Teams are encouraged, but not required, to include non-university participants, especially collaborators from SyracuseCoE Partner companies. However, funds may be disbursed only to academic institutions. Faculty may serve as the primary PI for only one proposal; however, any individual may serve as a Co-Investigator on multiple proposals.


Up to $10,000 for a single investigator; up to $25,000 for a multi-investigator team. SyracuseCoE intends to award up to $100,000 in this round. All funds must be expended by June 30, 2017.
