Research Week will be held October 12-16

Several sessions this year will focus on seed grant competitions to support individual and team research development. All competitions require written applications (Phase 1). Applicants selected to move on to Phase 2 will give an oral presentation of their ideas at their respective sessions during Research Week. After the presentations, a panel of judges will select the winners. In addition of being notified of the results that day, the winners will also be officially recognized during the awards ceremony on October 16.

Competitions include:

Multidisciplinary Planning Grant – An opportunity to win $50,000 plus a two-semester doctoral-level research assistant to develop an extramural center-type grant proposal, sponsored by the Office of Research and the Graduate School. Written applications are due September 15, 2020.

RA and $10K Seed Grant – An opportunity for $10,000 and a doctoral-level research assistant for one-semester for Spring 2021, sponsored by the Office of Research and the Graduate School. Applications are due September 15, 2020.
