Twenty-four Notre Dame researchers, along with their collaborators at partner universities, have been awarded funding through Notre Dame Research’s Internal Grants Program which was announced on December 9.

Jonathan Crass, research assistant professor in the Department of Physics, received an award from the Faculty Research Support Regular Grant program. The funds will support research on “Building a Foundation for Future Astro-Photonics Research at Notre Dame.”

The Faculty Research Support Program (FRSP) – Regular Grant (RG) provides funds to support outstanding research, scholarship, or creative endeavor that will make a major contribution in any field of study. Projects should lead to a significant outcome during the period of the award and, thus, the FRSP-RG should not be viewed as a seed funding opportunity for the generation of preliminary results. Grants ranging from $25,000 to $100,000 of total funding, as appropriate to the research proposal, over three years are available through this program.
