Grand Challenges grant apps sought from UMN-TC faculty

All Twin Cities faculty are invited to apply for Grand Challenges exploratory research grants to seed and foster the development of projects consistent with the University’s vision of a more integrative, vitally engaged campus collaboratively addressing Grand Challenges. Exploratory research proposals will identify exciting opportunities to foster new interdisciplinary collaborations, spur creative interdisciplinary approaches, integrate research across disciplines and colleges, and strengthen productive research interactions within and beyond the University.

Successful exploratory research grant proposals will be funded at levels up to $60,000, with an expected range of $25,000-$50,000, based on the goals of the proposed research.

Awards are non-recurring and must be expended within two years.

Proposals are due Wednesday, June 15. More information and application instructions.
