Competitive internal grants support initial work by early career faculty and research in new areas of endeavor, and travel to foreign conferences and symposia.
Provides assistance in the form of round-trip airfare for travel to foreign destinations specifically to participate in conferences for faculty and graduate students through a competitive process.
The explicit goal of the Interdisciplinary Proposal Development (IPD) program is to support cross-disciplinary teams of faculty, perhaps with partners from other research institutions, government or private sector, in their efforts to prepare competitive proposals for grand challenge-type multi-investigator/multi-institution grants. These grants are jointly sponsored by Office of the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost and the Office of the Vice President for Research.
Provides grant support to researchers in the College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences to promote the development of new plant cultivars.
The goal of the University of Georgia (UGA) - Georgia Regents University (GRU) Seed Funding Program is to explicitly encourage competitive extramural grant proposals involving personnel from both institutions (the PI may be at either institution).
These funds are being distributed in order to stimulate new collaborative projects between UGA and GRU that subsequently lead to new external grants, and applicants should keep this overriding goal in mind. Applicants and successful recipients must commit to submitting applications to external funding agencies by the specified deadlines.
Proposals are invited from a broad range of disciplines. Interdisciplinary or translational proposals, in particular, are encouraged.
