The Center for Energy, Environment, and Sustainability provides funding opportunities for research, scholarship, and working groups related to energy, environment and sustainability as broadly defined.

What We Fund: CEES grants seek to provide new opportunities for research and scholarly activities at Wake Forest. Though the center was formed with core groups in Renewable Energy Research, Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services, and Policy, Enterprise, and Markets, we support all areas of scholarship, and actively encourage new groups of scholars—faculty and students—dedicated to addressing problems related to the center’s mission of building a community dedicated to effecting meaningful change in the areas energy, environment, and sustainability.

These include, but are not limited to: (1) seed grants for scholarly activity or research, (2) competitive seed grants for interdisciplinary research/scholarship related to energy, environment and sustainability, (3) funds for half-day or full day meetings centered on developing or finishing proposals for external funding (see overview below).

Funding Levels: $1000-$4000 (Target, other amounts entertained)
