The Office of the Associate Dean for Research assists college faculty and departments in all research-related activities.
Guidelines: We have prepared the document, Ten Basic Steps for Securing Sponsored Research Awards, which all CU-Boulder CEAS faculty should follow. If you have any questions regarding this document or the process of securing sponsored research awards, please contact Linda Rose.
Travel Support: We provide support for proposal cost-sharing, travel to funding agencies, and interdisciplinary seminars.
Faculty may submit a half-page proposal for travel funding at any time. Priorities will include trips to explore major funding or center opportunities or with one or multiple visits per trip.
When requesting travel support to Funding Agencies from Kurt Maute, the Associate Dean for Research, please include a half-page proposal that includes:
The ADR Office will approve these requests based upon proposal. Note: The ADR Office may provide a 1:1 cost share, but will decide on an amount based upon the available budget and expense of trip.
Post-trip, please provide a short report recapping your meeting(s) and discussion(s). We will post summaries of major findings of interest to other faculty on the college's internal website,www.ceasresearch.org.
Proposals should be submitted to Linda Rose and they will be reviewed by Associate Dean Kurt Maute. A 1:1 cost share by the home department or unit is expected. Approximately $20,000 is budgeted annually by the Dean's office for travel.
Information on current funding opportunities as well as myriad information about funding agencies, proposal preparation, etc. can be found at www.ceasresearch.org, the password-protected research web site for CEAS faculty.
