Call for Proposals: SyracuseCoE Opens 2024 Faculty Fellows Program

Syracuse Center of Excellence in Environmental and Energy Systems (SyracuseCoE) is now accepting applications for its 2024 Faculty Fellows program.

Designed to catalyze new, externally sponsored research at Syracuse University and its Partner organizations, the Faculty Fellows program can help advance economic and workforce development for New York State businesses. Since 2015, the program has supported 63 researchers with 96 awards, totaling over $1 million in project funding.

SyracuseCoE invites proposals from faculty researchers for innovative research and development efforts in SyracuseCoE’s focus areas:

  • Clean/Healthy Air for Buildings and Communities
  • Clean/Low-Carbon Energy for Buildings and Communities
  • Clean/Safe Water for Buildings and Communities

Approximately $125,000 is available in this round of funding. Up to $15,000 per award is available for faculty proposals without industry collaboration. Up to $25,000 per award is available for proposed projects that engage a NYS company. Funding will be available starting in June 2024, and awardees may take up to 12 months to complete their projects.

To be eligible to apply, a faculty member must hold a full-time appointment at one of SyracuseCoE’s Academic Partner institutions: Syracuse University, SUNY-ESF, SUNY Oswego or SUNY Upstate Medical University. Tenured, tenure-track and non-tenure-track faculty are welcome to apply.
