Strategic Collaborative Grant Program
2017 Strategic Collaborative Grant
The Strategic Collaborative Grant Program endeavors to advance the following:
  • Cross-disciplinary team research
  • Cross-disciplinary research teams with strong research concepts
  • The ability to leverage this funding to obtain significant extramural research grants and contracts
  • A research enterprise that is striving to achieve the goals of the Strategic Plan “Creating our Third Century”
This solicitation is specifically targeting cross-disciplinary research teams that have prior collaborative funding success (internal and/or external funding) and would leverage additional seed funding to respond to targeted external funding opportunities. Research teams should be composed of a minimum of three team co-investigators, each with distinctly different professional disciplines. These disciplines do not need to reside in different Colleges, but preference will be given to teams that involve collaborations involving two or more Colleges.

This program is part of UC’s Third Century commitment to invest in strategic research initiatives and to create Centers of Excellence in the five research areas described in the strategic plan.
