Proposals must involve faculty from at least two UM campuses and from at least two different disciplines. Each campus may request up to $50,000 in a proposal; therefore, the maximum funding requested will be $200,000 if all four campuses are collaborating in a proposed study. Faculty may use their networks to identify collaborators on and this program is limited only to the four University of Missouri campuses.
A faculty member shall be named a principal investigator (PI) or co-principal investigator (co-PI) on only one (1) proposal in this competition. If a faculty member is named as a PI or co-PI in more than one proposal, then all proposals involving that faculty member will be returned without review and not considered for funding in this competition.
FUNDING: A total of up to $1M will be awarded with each campus receiving up to $250K. It is anticipated that 5 to 10 proposals will be funded.
