Deadline Extended for O&E Incentive Grants Program Proposals

The Office of Outreach and Engagement is EXTENDING THE DEADLINE for the Request for Proposals (RFP) for the Outreach and Engagement (O&E) Incentive Grants Program. The new deadline is April 10, 2020 by 5 pm.

View the revised RFP here.

The incentive grants will work to stimulate interdisciplinary proposals that will be competitive for extramural funding, jumpstart innovation, and broaden the base of faculty, staff, students and community partners participating in institutional engagement priorities, particularly those that address urgent community needs during the COVID-19 State of Emergency. Interdisciplinary collaborations are considered to be intensive work that integrates information, data, techniques, tools, perspectives, concepts, and theories from two or more disciplines to advance understanding and present opportunities to solve problems.

Proposals may be submitted by any NC State faculty member or EHRA staff who is eligible to submit a proposal to an external funding agency. Awards can be up to $10,000 per project and will become available in May 2020. The maximum number of awards for the Spring 2020 competition is three (3). The funds would be available for use until the end of June 2021.

Proposals for funding should be submitted to Samantha Graham, Innovative Engagement Program Manager, by email, no later than April 10, 2020 by 5 pm. Selections will be announced by May 1, 2020.
