2019-2020 Career Development Awards

Career Development Awards are designed to help faculty increase their exposure to colleagues at other institutions who can be collaborators and role models while introducing outside scholars to faculty at Drexel. Social networks are increasingly important and funding agencies are increasingly interested in projects that demonstrate multi-investigator, interdisciplinary endeavors. Building such a team, and developing a history of working together, can be invaluable for junior faculty or mid-career faculty moving in a more collaborative direction or beginning a new research area. This program provides funding for Drexel faculty to develop networks, nationally or internationally, with colleagues whose work complements activities at Drexel. For more information please visit the Career Development Awards Overview page.
