This program is intended to increase interdisciplinary and intercampus research collaborations to leverage the intellectual capital and resources at the four University of Missouri campuses.
Click here to read the official announcement of the program.
Proposals must involve faculty from at least two UM campuses and from at least two different disciplines. Each faculty member may request up to $25,000; therefore, the maximum funding requested will depend on the number of faculty collaborating in the proposed study. The funding can be used to support undergraduate students, graduate students or post-doctoral fellows, and materials and supplies. By design, the proposal submission requirements have been kept simple, however, a budget summary/justification is required upon submission. Also, faculty will be responsible for obtaining required internal approvals before submitting their proposals.
Faculty interested in seeking collaborators can use the Teaming/Collaboration feature within this University of Missouri internal website to submit their research ideas and connect with faculty who have the necessary expertise. Or, they may use their networks to identify collaborators.
A faculty member can serve as a principal investigator or co-principal investigator on only one (1) proposal in this program.
A total of $1M will be awarded with each campus receiving $250K. It is anticipated that 10 to 15 proposals will be funded.
The fund is $1 million for the first round witn $125,000 contributions from each of the four campuses and a $500,000 match (from the strategic initiative fund) from the system.
Each faculty memeber may request $25,000; therefore, the maximum funding requested will depend on the number of faculty collaborating on the research project.
Proposals Due: Friday, March 1, 2013
Award Notification: May 1, 2013
Award Period of Performance: June 1, 2013 - August 31, 2014 (time extensions beyond August 31, 2014 will not be approved)

How to Apply
An internal panel consisting of the four research officers and the UM Vice President for Research and Economic Development, who will serve as the chair, will review and select the proposals to be funded using the following criteria:
- Novelty of the proposed research.
- Merit of proposed approach.
- Potential for follow-on extramural support.
- Extent to which the collaboration is new.
Award recipients will:
- Present their research results in a poster session on September 9, 2014 (exact time and place to be announced); and
- Submit a one-page report, the format for which will be provided with the award notification letter.
