Multi-Disciplinary Research Initiative 2013 - 2014
Deadline: Monday, March 11, 2013 at 5:00 pm
In cooperation with the Faculty Senate Grants and Research Team (G&R Team), the Office of Research & raduate Studies (ORGS) is pleased to announce the first Multi-Disciplinary Research Initiative (MDRI) at Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU). This initiative replaces the Internal Grant Program. To reflect the national trend, both in research and graduate studies, the FGCU MDRI is created to promote and support inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary research and scholarly activities among different disciplines. The MDRI is competitive; it aims at forming inter-/multi-disciplinary research teams to secure extramural research grants and contracts. The MDRI provides seed money (up to $15,000 per award) for innovative research and scholarly activities that crosses the boundaries of disciplines, departments, schools, and/or colleges. Upon recommendations from the G&R Team, the Associate Vice President for Research & Dean of Graduate Studies (AVPR/DGS) will make the final funding decision based on the availability of funds.
