Collaborative Research Grants
To facilitate new cross-disciplinary research collaborations on campus that lead to future external funding.
All tenure-track and tenured faculty are eligible.
Grant amount is $15,000. The grant period is the summer following award notification.
Note: If academic year faculty request a salary stipend, they cannot teach during the summer. Any budgeted salaries or stipends must be used in the summer. However, funds can be budgeted into the academic year for covering project related expenses (e.g., student workers, paying consultants). The bulk of the faculty’s project must be conducted during the summer.
The Call for Proposals is available through the InfoReady portal. All applications must be submitted through InfoReady.
For detailed instructions on accessing the InfoReady portal, please see the InfoReady Internal Funding Application System Access Instructions.
Please note that a letter of support from each collaborator’s department chair is required as part of the application.
Also, please note that confirmation of completion of Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training, both Basic and Field-Specific, is required this year.
Proposal deadline: February 1, 2024 at 3 p.m.
Within two years of receiving the award, successful applicants must:
- Submit an article to a peer-reviewed journal on the research and report doing so to University Research and Innovation; and
- Present research findings to PFW stakeholders through an outlet or event approved by University Research and Innovation.
