Faculty Seed Grant and Pilot Funding Program

Research and Teaching Grants

The Arthur L. Irving Institute for Energy and Society at Dartmouth is delighted to return to an annual call to the Dartmouth community for faculty pilot and development grant funding for research and/or teaching proposals. Projects are selected for funding through a competitive process and with the expertise of climate and energy faculty across Dartmouth. These 1-2-year projects seed new research, accelerate existing research, and support education and engagement initiatives in a wide array of energy, climate, sustainability, health, and society related topic areas.

The Institute aims to drive the creation of ideas, technologies, and policies that will improve the availability and efficient use of energy for every person on the planet. The Institute is a catalyst leveraging the College's strengths in climate and energy research and education across every discipline. The Institute serves as a convener for faculty, students and experts, and invites and hosts external stakeholders – including community members, industry executives, researchers, and scholars – to explore society's pressing challenges and foster creative solutions at the interface of energy, climate, sustainability, health, and society.
