Objective

Instrumentation Discovery Travel Grants will enable scientists to visit sites, and meet with site Principal Investigators to learn details of hydrologic instrument installation, operation, maintenance, and data processing. CUAHSI is offering travel grants to permit academic scientists to visit colleagues who have expertise with instrumentation to enable them to efficiently learn new instrumentation and to deploy new instrumentation in their research. A site visit enables scientists to learn about field deployment, instrument networking, data collection methods, and data interpretation approaches, as well as to talk with colleagues about their experiences in operating the instrumentation under different landscapes.

The Critical Zone Observatories (CZOs) are willing to host researchers and many sites have an array of instrumentation in the field.  Applicants are expected to have already earned their Doctoral degree and be engaged in some research activities which this grant will augment.

Travel grants will be awarded based upon a short proposal which will be evaluated by the Instrumentation Standing Committee; preference will be given to early career scientists. This grant will provide reimbursement of up to $1000 for travel expenses incurred, including airfare, ground transportation, lodging, and per diem expenses. CUAHSI expects to disburse 10 grants this year.

Eligibility. Post docs and faculty members enrolled in or currently employed by a US university are eligible to receive an Instrumentation Travel Discovery Grant.  Preference will be given to early career faculty. The maximum amount of the grant is $1000. Travel may be to any location, foreign or domestic, but the overall cap still applies. 

The application should be submitted as a single pdf file to busmgr@cuahsi.org no later than October 1, 2015 and travel must be completed by January 31, 2016.

Application Process:

The application consists of the following items:

  1. A justification (maximum 1 page) explaining the following points specifically:
    1. What the applicant wishes to learn from the site visit, and
    2. How the applicant plans to use the information in his/her research.
    3. The expected outcomes from the visit (e.g., proposal development or instrumentation purchase)
  2. An approximate budget for the trip, including the proposed dates of the visit.
  3. A letter from the proposed host agreeing to the visit. Email format is acceptable.

**For laboratory visits, the justification should highlight the unique attributes of the laboratory which requires a site visit.

The application should be submitted as a single pdf file to busmgr@cuahsi.org no later than October 1, 2015 and travel must be completed by January 31, 2016.

Applications will be reviewed as they are received. Award decisions are expected to be made within 30 days of receipt of application.  Awards will be distributed on a rolling basis until available funds are expended.
