Accelerator Grants

The Accelerator Grant program is intended to assist 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 importance, and ways in which the group can collectively excel in that area, these grants provide significant flexibility in use of the grant funds to help the group establish itself as prominent and productive.  Grants can support forays into new areas and can help individuals or groups who have worked separately to coalesce around a theme. They should in all cases build upon existing, demonstrated strengths. 

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 is Friday, October 13th.

The submission deadline for proposals is Friday, October 27th.

Full proposals must be submitted electronically to VPResearch@lehigh.edu no later than 5PM EST on the deadline date.
