Collaborative Research Seed Grants
Grants aim to foster the development of innovative and equitable collaborative research projects among UMass faculty. Grants will contribute to the mission of the ADVANCE program in advancing women faculty and women faculty of color in STEM.
Through the power of collaboration UMass ADVANCE transforms the campus by cultivating faculty equity, inclusion and success. ADVANCE provides the resources, recognition and relationship building that are critical to equitable and successful collaboration in the 21st century academy.
UMass ADVANCE is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), which is advancing women faculty, including women faculty of color, in science and engineering.
ADVANCE Faculty Fellows
ADVANCE Faculty Fellows will partner with the ADVANCE-IT Team, providing recommendations and feedback about ADVANCE programming and resources, and promoting ADVANCE program efforts in their departments. We seek one faculty member from each department for a twelve-month term.
