Interdisciplinary Collaboration Grants Now Available

Binghamton University’s Division of Research has established the Interdisciplinary Collaboration Grants (ICG) Program to provide up to five grants each year to facilitate the development of collaborations on campus. This program is for investigators who seek to enhance their research opportunities through collaboration and may include projects that represent a new research agenda. Proposals from all areas of scholarship are encouraged.

Requests may be for no more than $10,000, and may be made for a wide range of interdisciplinary, collaborative activities such as creative and artistic projects appropriate to the fine arts, traditional scholarly endeavors in the humanities and social sciences and science and engineering experiments. All projects must lead to the development of a proposal for external support.

The award period for grants will not exceed one year and a proposal for external support is expected within six months following completion of the grant. However, collaborations with results that cannot be used to support a grant application will not adversely affect future funding provided results are documented in a report submitted to the Division of Research.

This program is not a bridge fund nor is it to support research in lieu of external grant funds. There is no restriction on the number of collaborations any individual may join. Funds requested to support an existing center or recognized collaborative arrangement must result in a new effort or activity. Collaborators may include individuals from off campus, but funding for other than Binghamton University personnel requires justification.

For more information on how to apply and to discuss proposal and budget preparation, contact the staff of Research Development Services at 777-6136. For questions about eligibility or scope of the program, contact Stephen Gilje, associate vice president for research, at 777-6136 or Completed applications are due March 18. It is anticipated that awards will be made by May 1.
