The CCCU is presently supporting proposals in two categories:
1) Matching Funds for External Grants
CCCU funds may be used as matching funds for research proposals to outside agencies that require cost sharing. In order to be eligible, the proposed research must be aligned with the research goals of the CCCU.
This call for proposals for matching funds will remain open until all of the funds have been committed. Proposals may be submitted at any time.
2) Equipment Grants
By making funds available for equipment, the CCCU aims to ensure that WUSTL investigators have state-of-the-art analytical facilities for coal research and are able to continue to build new coal research capabilities. The CCCU is currently seeking proposals from investigators for new equipment purchases. Specialized equipment intended for individual lab use will be considered, however, it is preferred that the equipment be beneficial and made available to multiple users (shared). PIs may request items that benefit existing programs, or that would add new capabilities that could be utilized to attract additional outside funding.
This call for proposals for equipment grants will remain open until all of the funds have been committed. Proposals may be submitted at any time.
