Announcing NGI Request for Proposals

Tuesday, April 7, 2015

This is a general call for funding proposals related to the new Natural Gas Initiative, which will be supported by funds from the Initiative.  Expected funding for each proposed project is up to $100,000 per year.  Projects will be funded for a period of one year with an option to renew upon approval.


The Natural Gas Initiative’s key areas of focus for new research are:

  • Resource Development
  • Environmental Impacts and Climate Change
  • Natural Gas as a Fuel, Feedstock and Catalyst
  • Global Markets and Economic Impacts
  • Policy and Regulatory Reform
  • Geopolitical Impacts


Research in any specific area or combination of these areas is of particular interest. Proposals that involve interdisciplinary efforts, especially those that bring together faculty in new ways, are encouraged. The proposed work may involve the broad range of disciplines involved in energy, for example, science, engineering, policy, and/or social science, individually or in combination.
