Four UGA colleges are partnering with the Office of the Vice President for Research to provide small grants to investigators who narrowly miss getting their external research proposals funded.
Investigators in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, College of Engineering, Franklin College of Arts and Sciences, and College of Veterinary Medicine may apply for small, one-year grants of $2,000 to $10,000 to help strategically improve a proposal’s viability upon re-submission.
For complete details on the program for each college, see links below.
College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Grants on the Edge: Proposals reviewed on a rolling basis.
College of Engineering Awards Within Reach: Proposals reviewed on a rolling basis.
Franklin College of Arts and Sciences Grants on the Edge: Proposals reviewed on a rolling basis.
College of Veterinary Medicine Grants on the Edge: Applications are due November 1st, 2016, with awards available in January 2017. The program also will consider small grants for new proposals if the investigator is able to demonstrate that they have a nearly completed competitive grant application with a specific and surmountable weakness.
