New and Revised Internal, Campus-Wide Funding Opportunities

The University of Arizona's Research, Discovery & Innovation (RDI) office has revised and developed new internal, campus-wide funding opportunities to support UA researchers in pursuing extramural funding with competitive proposal development.

The new and revised grants, with a proposal deadline of March 22, are as follows:

Faculty Seed Grants (FSG): These revised grants are designed to jump-start worthwhile projects by providing short-term, one-time support. FSG grants provide up to $10,000 on a competitive basis and are available in three tracks: International; Art, Culture and Heritage; and Early Career Innovation.

Track 1: International: lead to international research collaboration and/or mobility collaboration with an international partner that will eventually lead to new external funding or financially sustainable programming that supports research activities.

Track 2: Art, Culture and Heritage: lead to interdisciplinary collaboration that will lead to new externally funded research or scholarly activities.

Track 3: Early Career Innovation: lead to the generation of data for new extramural proposals. This track is limited to faculty within eight years of their initial academic appointment.

International Research & Academic Program Development (IRPD) Grants: Research, Discovery & Innovation (RDI) and the Office of Global Initiatives (OGI) will co-fund these new grants. They are designed to jump-start and quickly grow either international research done by transdisciplinary collaborations, or the development of new academic programs in collaboration with international partner institutions.

Track 1: International Research Initiative

Level 1: Large – up to $50K to be spent on activities leading to an external grant proposal for over $1M (direct and indirect costs combined)

Level 2: Medium – up to $30K to be spent on activities leading to an external grant proposal over $100K and under $1M (direct and indirect costs combined)

Track 2: International Academic Program Development, up to $15K to be spent on activities leading to a new international dual degree and/or student mobility initiative
