To provide funding for more projects, the maximum award amount for each grant is $100,000 for the two-year period. Each grantee may participate in only one proposal submitted to the Coordinating Board. To provide as much funding as possible for student education and training, faculty salaries have been eliminated from the program. Faculty domestic travel and conference registration fees are allowed.
To address statewide research goals, reviewers are most interested in proposals linked to the state's six targeted cluster areas:
- Advanced technologies and manufacturing
- Aerospace and defense
- Biotechnology and life sciences
- Information technology and computer technology
- Petroleum Refining and chemical products
UTSA ARP limited submission forms are due Nov. 1, 2005, to the UTSA Office of Research Development. For more information, contact Noe Saldana at (210) 458-4340.
