Collaboration Challenge Research Grant from the Interdisciplinary Collaborative Network
The CC Research Grant (CC-RG) will help make it feasible for students to engage in interdisciplinary collaboration as a component of their graduate research by directly funding a research project. Graduate students are invited to submit proposals for studies that involve researchers from disciplines other than their own (graduate student, faculty, or otherwise). The ICN anticipates offering at least two $1000 CC-RGs awards per school per year. This award will directly fund research in accordance with a budget that will be included with the proposal (i.e., the award will not be a stipend).
The deadline is November 17th. For more info and to apply, visit http://www.interdisciplinarycollaborativenetwork.org/ccprogram
