Goals of Grant
The CRSG will provide support for Citadel faculty members and students in the area of applied climatology research and outreach with an emphasis on (though not limited to) the South Carolina Lowcountry region and surrounding areas. Applied climatology is an interdisciplinary field of study, encompassing a breadth of academic and research programs at The Citadel including, but not limited to: biology, chemistry, climatology, engineering, environmental science, marine science, meteorology, oceanography, physics, health, education and social sciences. Grants will be awarded for up to a 19-month period, starting 15 October 2022, with funding amounts of up to $12,000 per grant. A total of $60,000 will be available for FY2023.

Eligibility and Funding
All faculty members and students across all schools within The Citadel are eligible to apply. Citadel students are eligible to serve as the principal investigator (PI), but must be working in conjunction with a Citadel faculty member. This faculty member will be specified in the proposal and be expected to mentor the student for the duration of the project. A Citadel faculty member is defined as any person with teaching duties and currently employed by The Citadel, including tenured, tenure-track, visiting professors, instructors, and adjuncts. The faculty member must submit all proposals even if a student is the PI. CRSG funds may be used for research supplies, domestic travel for research purposes (e.g., faculty/student presentations at relevant research conferences), participant support costs, production and distribution of educational/outreach materials, conference registration costs, poster printing and journal publication costs. Faculty members and/or external collaborators who teach at public/private K-12 institutions may request, included as part of the budget, a maximum stipend of $2,000 per faculty member/collaborator and a maximum of $6,000 per Citadel student. CRSG funds cannot be used for indirect costs or overhead charges, international travel, computers, or office supplies.
