The Provost and the Office of Research and Engagement announce the release of funding for the Giant Steps Research Development Grants.
The goal of this program is to provide seed funding for projects that will enhance UNCG’s external visibility, encourage research as well as increase the opportunity to leverage preliminary results obtained with this funding to gain significant future federal and/or private funding.
Winning proposals are expected to define an integrated research effort distinguished by intellectual excellence and driven by a clear vision of fundamental advances, new discoveries or technological developments having state, national and global and societal impact aligned with the areas defined in the strategic plan (e.g., health and wellness, vibrant communities or global connections).
A requirement of the award is the submission of at least one research proposal to an external funding source by the end of the award period. The Provost and Office of Research and Engagement anticipates funding up to six proposals of up to $25,000 each.
Applications are due Nov. 6, 2017, with projects to begin Jan. 8, 2018, and work completed no later than June 30, 2019. For more information, contact Dr. Terri Shelton, email@example.com.
