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. This effort 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, and to 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 2021. 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 2022.
Submissions are now closed.
