Strategic Collaborative Research Grant Program


Announcement of RFP:  February 18, 2016 Deadline:  March 31, 2016 at 5:00 pm


The Strategic Collaborative Grant Program endeavors to advance the following: 1) cross-disciplinary team research with a focus on cross-campus collaborations; 2) formation of interdisciplinary research teams within the evolving context of team science (the science of team science); 3) a research enterprise that is striving to achieve the goals of the Strategic Plan “Creating our Third Century”; and 4) enhancing our ability to obtain external research contracts and grants.  For this program, while all of these goals are important, the overarching aim is to develop interdisciplinary research teams and institutional infrastructure that will result in a larger number of research contracts and grants and a growing national visibility as a top notch, tier-1, research university.
