The Institute of Environmental Research and Education (IERE) seeks to stimulate the creation of multidisciplinary research projects related to the environment. The grants offered to faculty are intended to "seed" environmentally related research that subsequently results in the preparation and submission of a proposal to an external funding agency that is submitted through the IERE. In addition, the IERE especially hopes to inspire effective collaboration between faculty members and students in diverse disciplines. The Seed Grants are competitively awarded to the most meritorious proposals.
Funding for Seed Grants is provided through the generosity of donors. We would like to thank our donors for supporting faculty research and helping create student research opportunities.
