URC Interdisciplinary Faculty Research Support Program
Purpose: This program is designed to support pilot research projects that are part of a collaborative effort between faculty in at least two different disciplines. The goal of this program is to establish collaborative research efforts that will result in competitive research proposals to national funding agencies in the STEM areas and as grants to interpret and enhance disciplinary knowledge in areas where extramural funds are not generally available. URC funding is primarily meant for those writing their first grant or for others who wish to enter new areas of investigation. Successful applicants are expected to present a record of prior activity that indicates a devotion to scholarship and the potential for high-quality achievement. Research support of up to $25,000 will be provided.
