The Washington College of Law faculty are not eligible for this particular funding opportunity, unless they are part of a group of faculty from other academic units at AU.
The awards are intended to provide financial support for the direct costs of pilot research studies, demonstration projects, feasibility studies or other forms of proof of concept, to enable faculty members to leverage the results and apply for external funds to support their research, scholarship or creative activities.
