2017 REMRSEC Summer Faculty Awards Announcement


We are pleased to announce the 2017 REMRSEC Summer Faculty Awards. The goal of these awards is to provide a research incubator program to faculty, where summer support will be given to faculty to help with their research proposal preparations. Each award will provide up to 5 days of summer support, not to exceed $5,000.

This year, the REMRSEC Executive Committee will offer 5 REMRSEC Summer Faculty awards. Preference will be given to applications from junior faculty. The REMRSEC Executive Committee will also provide faculty mentorship, e.g. providing feedback on proposals.

The proposed research areas can be in diverse areas of materials research related to renewable energy, such as catalysts, membranes, and inorganic and other materials for separation, ion transport, photovoltaics, energy storage materials and other related applications.

The application will consist of no more than 1 page, which includes:
• The applicant’s name and department
• Abstract of research proposal
• Expected funding agency for the research proposal
• Brief statement justifying why the applicant would benefit from this award.

Please send the 1 page application to remrsec@mines.edu by 20 March. Decisions are expected to be announced by 15 April 2017.
