Include DAC Support in Your Grant Budget

PIs may budget for DAC support in their grants. To ensure that DAC support is included in your upcoming grant proposal, we recommend that you schedule a consultation to explore the ways in which we can assist you. Our services and resources range from embedding one of our team members in your project and creating custom workflows to leasing storage and purchasing time on our high-performance cluster.

We are here to support your research.

DAC Analytics Resource Awards

If you have not yet budgeted for DAC support in a current funding source, you can apply for a DAC Analytics Resource Award. Currently, the awards will cover up to $10,000 of DAC services. A proposal is necessary to apply for this award. More information and how to apply is available here.
