The Accelerator Grant program supports teams of Lehigh investigators in developing multi-investigator research programs in particularly promising areas. Based on a team’s identification of a major, specific area of opportunity and ways in which it can excel in that area, these grants provide significant flexibility in use of the grant funds. Teams are expected to use these grants to broaden and quicken their access to extramural support, at levels that enable them to sustain highly productive multi-investigator programs. These grants should enable an already strong group to grow a funded program more rapidly than would have been likely otherwise.
For the 2017-2018 academic year, this program is run in the fall.
The award amount is determined for each fiscal year.
Fall 2017 letter of intent deadline TBA.
The submission deadline for proposals TBA.
Full proposals must be submitted electronically to VPResearch@lehigh.edu no later than 5PM EST on the deadline date.
