Welcome from the Vice President for Research

CWRU researchers are among the most distinguished in the world. We have 16 Nobel Laureates among current and former faculty and alumni, 4 members of the National Academies of Sciences, 7 members of the National Academy of Engineering, and 8 members of the Institute of Medicine. We also partner with artistic and cultural institutions on a broad range of projects that make important scholarly contributions in the humanities and social sciences.

Extraordinary research requires an outstanding infrastructure. Our Office of Research & Technology Management provides support to seek out grant funding, to facilitate industrial sponsorship, and to transfer university technologies to the marketplace. This is a place for people driven to make a difference, and our office exists to help them succeed.

Contact us. We want you to see what our campus can offer.

Limited Submission Reminder: W.M. Keck Foundation Research Program

Key Deadlines: June 15, 2015 (CWRU internal LOI), November 1, 2015 (Sponsor Deadline).

The W.M. Keck Foundation Research Program seeks to benefit humanity by funding fundamental, high-risk research in two specific areas: 1) medical research and 2) science and engineering. Both Senior and Early Career investigators are encouraged to apply. CWRU may submit two proposals per funding cycle: one (1) in Medical Research and one (1) in Science and Engineering Research.

Applicants are encouraged to consult with their Associate Deans for Research prior to internal submission to assure they meet eligibility criteria and their projects meet stated program objectives.

Grants of up to $1 million over 3 years are awarded for projects in science and engineering research and medical research that:

  • Focus on basic, early stage, emerging areas of research, not on clinical or translational research, treatment trials or research for the sole purpose of drug development.
  • Have the potential to develop breakthrough technologies, instrumentation or methodologies.
  • Have few, if any, peer groups pursuing comparable or related work.
  • Have high level of risk due to unconventional approaches, or by challenging the prevailing paradigm.
  • Have the potential for transformative impact, such as the founding of a new field of research, the enabling of observations not previously possible, or the altered perception of a previously intractable problem.
  • Fall outside the mission of public funding agencies. Provide specifics. If you've been declined federal funding, provide the documentation stating why, if available.
  • Demonstrate that the W. M. Keck Foundation's support is essential to the project's success.


For more information on this limited submission opportunity, visit the Office of Research Administration website.

Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation, Inc.

The Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation seeks to further the development of scientific leadership in the field of environmental chemistry with a postdoctoral fellowship program. The Postdoctoral Program in Environmental Chemistry provides a principal investigator with an award of $120,000 over two years to appoint a Postdoctoral Fellow in environmental chemistry.

The Postdoctoral Program in Environmental Chemistry is open to all academic and other not-for-profit organizations in the States, Districts, and Territories of the United States of America. Applications are accepted from principal investigators who have well-established research efforts in environmental science or engineering. These research activities need not be located in traditional departments in the chemical sciences, and collaboration across departments and institutions is encouraged. The postdoctoral fellow is usually not already identified nor in the principal investigator's lab at the time of application.

Application Deadline: August 3, 2015

Department of Health and Human Services – Administration for Children & Families

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits applications for the Competitive Abstinence Education (CAE) program. The purpose of the CAE program is to provide funding for additional tools to address the rates of teen pregnancy among adolescent youth who are at greatest risk of sexually transmitted infections and most likely to bear children out of wedlock. Program plans will focus on the social, psychological, and health gains to be realized by delaying initiation of sexual activity and engaging in healthy relationships. Grantees under this program will be expected to develop a targeted and medically accurate approach to reducing teen pregnancies through abstinence education.

Application Deadline: June 24, 2015
