CDiG Affiliated Faculty Grant Guidelines and Application
All Center for the Digital Globe Faculty Fellows (CDiG Affiliated Faculty) are eligible
to apply for our seed grants. We only fund faculty projects and travel that are CDiG related. A
Call for Faculty Seed Grants will be sent out through our list-serve in the fall of each year which is after the start of each new
fiscal year. Our fall and spring deadlines for submission of affiliated faculty grant applications are November 1 and April 11.
Note: CDiG Affiliated Faculty grants are limited to one award per person per year.
Types of Affiliated Faculty Grants Offered
We offer three types of grants for affiliated faculty.
- Faculty travel grants up to $1,500 (travel to conferences to present papers, etc.).
- Faculty non-travel grants up to $5,000 (for equipment, software and other).
- Faculty grants up to $5,000 for joint projects/research with students (co-authored/mentored CDiG related work with a student).
Exceptions to Affiliated Faculty Grant Limits
We will consider some exceptions above and below our grant limits. We will consider an exception over the limit if you have matching funds from your department. Also, if you are a little short on funding for your project or travel and need only a partial amount, we will consider awarding a partial amount less than $5,000.
Additional Requirements for Affiliated Faculty Grants
After your grant is awarded and your project completed, we would like to share with others about your project. We will require the following.
- Each grant recipient will be interviewed by a student about their project. The interview will be posted on the CDiG web site.
- Each grant recipient will write a report about their project. The report will be posted on the CDiG web site with their interview.
- Each grant recipient will be asked to give a presentation about their project at a brown bag gathering on campus. Interested students, faculty and others will be invited.
