Owing to unexpected volume, the March 2014 review of Interdisciplinary Proposal Development applications has taken longer than expected. Our current plan is to announce winners on or about 1 May 2014. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
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.
