Information Session for I-CREWS Seed Funding Awards (Small)

This Seed Funding program is part of  Idaho Community-engaged Resilience for Energy-Water (E-W) Systems (I-CREWS), Idaho’s multi-year (2023-2028) statewide National Science Foundation (NSF) Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) Track-1 Research Infrastructure Improvement (RII) award. Seed Funds are intended to catalyze projects in emerging areas that are clearly related to (but do not duplicate) the research and education theme of I-CREWS.

Next week there will be two optional Open Forum times for anyone to join and ask questions about the Seed Funding announcement. These are:

  • Monday, May 6th at 10 am PT (11 am MT)
  • Tuesday, May 7th at 12 pm PT (1 pm MT)

To receive a Zoom link, contact Peggy Martinez at

Additional Information

These awards are expected primarily to be led by early-career researchers initiating research directly related to E-W Systems. Established or mid-career researchers seeking to expand or apply their expertise into a new E-W research direction are also eligible. Current participation in the I-CREWS project is not required for eligibility.


Up to $55,000


Up to one (1) year. Projects that can be initiated during summer 2024 are strongly encouraged. All projects must begin no later than August 2024.
