Previous Faculty Fellows Awardees:

The School of Computing solicitation for 2024-2025 Faculty Fellows received 31 applications from 19 units across campus. Each proposal had three reviews and was then discussed in a computationally diverse faculty panel. Review criteria and funding decisions were made according to criteria listed in the call for proposals. Fourteen projects were funded from thirteen different departments. We were particularly pleased to see an increased number of proposals from the humanities where the use of artificial intelligence is impacting research methods.

2024-2025 Faculty Fellows

The School of Computing received 48 proposals for the 2023-2034 Faculty Fellows solicitation. Proposals came from 25 different units in 7 different colleges and administrative units. While most proposals were from CEPS and ALSNR we were particularly pleased to receive proposals from the humanities, performing arts, business, education, and health sciences. Energy, biology, and astrophysics were the top domain areas that proposals covered. Data science, modeling and simulation, AI/ML/Computer Vision were the main computing areas submitted. All proposals received 3 peer reviews using the criteria stated in the call for proposals and considering any conflicts of interest. Proposals were then discussed in a panel, with the panel ranking each proposal as highly competitive for funding (fund if possible), competitive for funding (unlikely to have funds but fundable), or less competitive for funding (will not be funded). Funding allowed us to award 16 proposals from 14 unique departments. See awardees linked below. Congratulations to all!

2023-2024 Faculty Fellows

The School of Computing at the University of Wyoming received 34 applications for the 2022-2023 Faculty Awards that support research, teaching and engagement activities connected to advancing computing across the university. The School of Computing identified several criteria that proposals for Faculty Awards should meet to have priority for funding. These include alignment with university initiatives and state priorities, building new opportunities or capacity in computing, impacting student experiences and learning, advancing the school in its initial phase of development, and contributing to the value of computing for all. The selection committee awarded 16 faculty (linked below) from five different colleges and twelve different departments. The School of Computing is proud to have such a diverse group of faculty members who bring unique perspectives and knowledge to their teaching, research, and engagement. The School of Computing congratulates all of the faculty members who have received funding for their projects and thanks them for their contributions to the advancement of computing at the University of Wyoming.
