Who should apply
University of Arkansas faculty engaged in interdisciplinary research including, but not limited to, the following areas:
Projects that focus on interdisciplinary discovery areas, with particular emphasis on the university’s signature research areas
Collaborative research partnerships with UAMS for health-related projects that will lead to future NIH or external funding
Projects that promote faculty and student innovation and collaboration, allowing teams to collect data or demonstrate proof of concept
Projects that promote collaborative and research-based experiential teaching and learning for undergraduate, graduate and professional students
The fund prioritizes cutting-edge ideas and collaborations and seeks to support “early stage” research that often doesn’t qualify for external funding. Faculty are encouraged to submit proposals that promote discovery through interdisciplinary efforts.
