TC faculty are invited to submit proposals by June 15, 2016, for Grand Challenges Exploratory Research Grants of up to $60,000. The grants are part of a two-track initiative--along with Interdisciplinary Research Work Groups--to advance strategic research goals for the campus. Guidelines and FAQs have been posted.

A campus-wide process identified a set of five interrelated Grand Challenges where we are well positioned to have major impact as a research campus. These areas capture exceptional strengths that build directly on the expertise of our faculty. We now look to continued faculty leadership in shaping University investments that will advance the transformational research goals of our Strategic Plan.
