IDIES announces two funding opportunities

IDIES' Seed Funding Program and Summer Student Fellowship Program are open for applications.

  • The goal of the SFP is to provide seed funding for data-intensive computing projects that involve data science and data-intensive techniques and analysis as part of the core research, have multidisciplinary teams (the PI team must represent a minimum of two departments), and build ideas and teams with good prospects for successful proposals to attract external research support by leveraging IDIES intellectual and physical infrastructure.

  • The Summer Student Fellowship Program will offer awards to support a summer research project led by undergraduate students with the guidance of an IDIES faculty member mentor. These projects are meant to provide an opportunity for students to participate in a 10-week (June to August) full-time data science–focused research project in collaboration with an IDIES faculty member.

The deadline for proposals on both programs is 5 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 31. Awards will be announced in early April.
