Call for Division Innovative Project Grant proposals - Apply by February 1st

The DAC Innovative Project Grant (IPG) program encourages division members to develop and implement new activities to strengthen their Divisions. All technical divisions are invited to apply for funding for up to two projects totaling up to $12,500 per year.

For consideration in the Spring funding cycle, the submission deadline is February 1, 2018. Funding decisions will be made at the ACS National Meeting in New Orleans, March 18-22, 2018. In order to be considered for funding for new projects, divisions are required to submit summary reports for any previously funded IPGs. Complete a summary report.

Please note the following:

  • The maximum funding per project is $7,500; the maximum funding for two projects is $12,500.
  • Divisions can submit joint applications describing inter-divisional activities for a maximum of $12,500. If funded, funds are split evenly between partnering divisions. These joint applications require identical proposals from each partnering division.
  • IPG funds may not be used for contemporaneous events within the meeting where the funding decision is made.
