The Aldous Innovation Fund focuses on one or more Roadmap goals annually.For 2015-16 the awards focus on the two key Roadmap goals of diversity and engagement. Diversity grants test new projects that promote equity, inclusion, and diversity throughout CLA. Engagement grants focus on new projects that connect CLA research, creative work, instruction, and outreach with communities beyond the boundaries of the campus.
