stem catalyst initiative
faculty and staff stem research
the stem catalyst initiative was created to invest in and support faculty and student stem research here at the university of dayton. this past summer, the stem catalyst grant program funded eight different faculty and student research projects. these projects aspired to address societal and public health issues in support of our university goal to become "the university for the common good."
we invite you to submit your application for a stem catalyst grant — a highly competitive science, engineering and mathematics research grant. all faculty — tenured, tenure track and non-tenure track — are eligible for funding through this initiative.
the program provides up to $500,000 to broadly support research across stem fields. the award is intended to advance new and existing research programs that have the potential to rise to national prominence and transition to external funding. applications should articulate how the research advances the university of dayton’s commitment to the common good. proposals from collaborative teams addressing multidisciplinary challenges are particularly encouraged.
stem catalyst grants are offered through a collaborative effort between the college of arts and sciences, the college's hanley sustainability institute and the school of engineering.
