The Faculty Collaboration Grant competition is being modified and will follow the Confluencenter’s Innovation Farm model going forward. Award funding will promote larger collaborative efforts by requiring “working groups” of at least four faculty to facilitate seed projects over a longer period of time.
Faculty Collaboration Grants are seed grants for creative and interdisciplinary research projects that can be used as examples or pilot projects for external funding. Faculty from the Colleges of Fine Arts, Humanities and Social and Behavioral Sciences can apply for these grants if they have creative, collaborative and interdisciplinary research to pursue. Projects should result in outcomes enabling faculty to apply for external funding, which will increase the impact and visibility of creative research at the University of Arizona. These grants are one-time awards, and applicants should design projects that can be completed during one academic year.
