2013 Faculty Seed Grants and Community Connection Grants Programs
The Office of the Senior Vice President for Research (SVPR) and the University of Arizona Foundation continue to support innovative faculty work. Proposals will be managed through an online proposal system at SVPR. These grants replace the Independent Grants and Faculty Small Grants programs.
Community Connection Grants (formerly the Independent Grants program) fund proposals for exemplary, innovative projects that connect the University to the community. These grants are funded by donors to the UA Foundation who chose to leave a legacy in the form of endowed funds to benefit the University. Applications are now available.
Faculty Seed Grants (formerly Faculty Small Grants), as in years past, provides awards of up to $10,000 on a competitive basis for projects involving research or other creative scholarly activity. These grants are sponsored by the UA Foundation. Applications are now available.
Further details about both programs, instructions, and online application forms are posted here. Two preparation workshops will be offered, one to provide details and guidance for Faculty Seed Grant applicants and the other for Community Connection Grant applicants. See the website for details and registration.
