Neukom Institute Announces 2024 Annual Funding Opportunities

Faculty, undergraduate and graduate students, and postdoctoral scholars engaged in computational research are invited to apply for grants and fellowships.

Funding opportunities are available for faculty, undergraduate and graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers through the Neukom Institute for Computational Science. The Neukom Institute supports computational investigations that catalyze creative thought across the Dartmouth campus. 

Faculty Grant Programs

The CompX program provides up to $40,000 in seed funding for innovative work with a computational component. Previously funded projects include work in Arts and Sciences, the Thayer School of Engineering, Geisel School of Medicine, and Tuck School of Business. The deadline to apply is Feb. 16, 2024. Learn more about the application processes and apply. 

Neukom Scholars

This program provides $1,200 per term in support of undergraduate research assistants working on computational aspects of faculty-advised projects. The deadline for the spring term is Jan. 1, 2024. Learn more about the application process, view previously funded research, and apply.

Travel Grants

These grants support both undergraduate and graduate student research. Two grants of $1,000 are awarded each month. Eligible students must be engaged in faculty-advised research focused on the development of novel computational techniques and/or the application of computational methods. Awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis, travel grants are available to students who will be presenting their research at conferences, workshops, or symposia, in line with Dartmouth travel guidelines.  

Workshops/Conferences/Working Groups

The Neukom Institute supports various collective activities focused on computational themes. Inquiries and proposals for these kinds of events are welcome. (View guidelines related to large, formal workshops.) The Neukom Interdisciplinary Working Groups initiative offers an effective way to bring in small groups of collaborators working toward a shared goal such as a proposal or book. 

The Neukom Fellows Program

This interdisciplinary postdoctoral program brings early-career researchers to campus whose work has a computational theme. These are three-year positions. Neukom fellows must have a "departmental home" as well as two mentors on campus from different departments. The conditions of appointment include teaching one class in each year of residence. View profiles of the current group of fellows; and learn more about the application process. The application deadline for positions starting in Sept. 2024 is Dec. 1, 2023.
