Incentive Grants Overview

The O&E Incentive Grants Program seeks to align interdisciplinary faculty, their expertise, their students, and their research work to address significant community challenges in Wake County. Our hope is that these incentive grants will increase research efforts in key areas and will leverage additional investment. This program also supports student engagement through faculty and community collaborations.

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 2022. The maximum number of awards for the Spring 2023 competition is three (3). The funds would be available for use until the end of June 2024.

Proposals for funding should be submitted to Julia Kardos, Special Projects Coordinator, by email, no later than 5:00 PM, on March 24, 2023 (deadline extended). Selections will be announced by April 7, 2023.
