Announcement: The Office of Research is proud to announce the launching of a new Zumberge grant program! The Zumberge Research Coordination & Team Building (RCTB) award provides opportunities to foster new collaborations between USC faculty, as well as between USC and other research institutions nationally, with the goal to support faculty teams working on collaborative, multidisciplinary new research projects.
The RCTB award does not fund primary research. Rather, the program supports the means by which investigators can share information and ideas, coordinate ongoing or planned research activities, and foster synthesis and new collaborations. The proposed activities should establish the foundation for members of the collaborative group to create new research projects as well as develop working relationships with state and federal funding agencies and foundations.
Support will be provided for teams of investigators to communicate and coordinate their efforts across disciplinary, organizational, institutional, and geographical boundaries. The objectives are to facilitate open communication and exchange of information and resources as well as to integrate research.
There is a relatively quick turn-around time for this program – proposal submission deadline date is Monday, June 13, 2022. However, the proposal is very brief, only 2 pages!
Applications can request up to $25,000; awards are not renewable. Program details and link to proposal portal can be found on the grants funding portal: https://orif.usc.edu/funding/
