Funding available

Amazon, in conjunction with the University of Washington, has recently announced its Catalyst awards. These are for $10,000 to $100,000 over a 3 to 18 month period. The awards are refreshingly non-bureaucratic; no need to spell out your research plan. The principle investigator needs to be faculty, student or staff at the University of Washington, but the team can include outsiders. Amazon is looking for Big Ideas in any field – technical, arts, theatre, economics, etc. The application process consists of answering 18 questions on including a press release of your anticipated results. There in no deadline. Apply any time before 2020. They promise to review your proposal in 30 days and fund it withing 60 days. The entire grant goes to the team; the university does not recover overhead.

Contact me if you want to work with a UW team on a partnership topic, such as applications for the new economic indicators.
