Incentive Grants Overview

The Outreach and Engagement (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.

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

Submissions are closed.
