The proposed project must involve at least three tenure-track faculty members, including at least one tenured member of the faculty, as co-Principal Investigators.
Can an Accelerator Grant be used to support a graduate/research assistant?
If the assistance provided is to further the faculty member’s research project, the budget can include student support but student research projects are not eligible. The extent and justification for student support should be included in the project narrative.
There is no set rate for graduate student compensation under a Accelerator award however faculty should adhere to the rate currently used by their college and the rate should be appropriate to the type of work being performed.
The Accelerator Grant should not be used to compensate tuition costs.
