Explore Grants for COVID-19 Research
The ICDS-ACI Explore program enables faculty to advance computation-enabled and data-enabled research that can enhance the visibility of Penn State, and to facilitate the development of competitive proposals to external funding agencies. Our priority is to support faculty seeking to “Explore” new research directions that represent a departure from prior or ongoing work. Allocation of ICDS-ACI computing and data resources will be made available for a period of 1 to 6 months, and applications will be peer-reviewed.
Reviewed on a rolling basis with no fixed deadline
Learn more about additional seed grant opportunities through Penn State institutes by visiting the Office of the Senior Vice President.
