Provost's Collaborative Research Grants
As part of the Faculty Development and Enhancement initiative, the Provost's Office is offering up to $3,000 for collaborative research among two or more researchers; graduate student collaboration is permissible, but a faculty member must be principal investigator. Preference will be given to interdisciplinary research in alignment with the university guiding priorities and research and discovery missions.
All requests must be submitted by 4:59 p.m. on Nov. 6.
Award recipients will be notified in late November, and will have until June 30, 2018, to use the awarded funds. If you are interested in applying for the Provost's Collaborative Research Grant, please complete the application available on the Faculty Enhancement and Development website.
