(Jan. 20, 2010)--The UTSA Office of the Vice President for Research (VPR) is offering $242,000 to faculty to fund proposals to establish new and innovative collaborative and multidisciplinary research programs in one of more of the university's five strategic areas of excellence: health, security, energy and the environment, human and social development, and sustainability.

Proposals for UTSA's 2011-2012 Collaborative Research Seed Grant Program (CRSGP) and Tenure-track Research Award Competition (TRAC) are due at 5 p.m., Monday, March 8 in the Office of the Assistant Vice President for Research, Multidisciplinary Studies Building Room 4.03.55, Main Campus.

Funds awarded through the CRSGP and TRAC programs must be used exclusively for research activities and may not be used for non-research or administrative costs. Additionally, funding must be expended by Aug. 31, 2011.

Collaborative Research Seed Grant Program (up to $110,000 available in two proposal categories):

  • Proposals from multiple departments within a single college ($25,000 maximum award)
  • Proposals from multiple UTSA colleges, centers or institutes or a single UTSA organization with collaborators from one or more outside organizations, e.g.: Southwest Research Institute, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio or industry ($30,000 maximum award).

Tenure-track Research Award Competition (up to $132,000 available):

The TRAC program encourages UTSA's junior faculty to pursue research in one or more of these areas: health, security, energy and the environment, human and social development, or sustainability. Proposals must include a completed application, budget, five-page narrative and the principal investigator's curriculum vitae.

For CRSGP and TRAC funding, the judging rubric used this year is different from last year's scoring guidelines. A description of the new scoring process is available in the "Guidelines" document for each award type at the UTSA Office of the Vice President for Research Web site. Decisions for 2011-2012 CRSGP and TRAC funding will be made during the spring semester. Funds for both programs will be distributed Sept. 1.

For more information, program applications and budget forms, visit the UTSA Office of the Vice President for Research Web site or contact Jim Massaro at 210-458-6691.

Football standouts make Roadrunner history

For Ashaad Mabry and Triston Wade, football is not just a passing fancy. Both players were part of the UTSA football program almost from the beginning. When UTSA opens the 2015 season Thursday at Arizona, it will be the first time the Roadrunners take the field without them. But Mabry and Wade will still be playing football; their uniforms will just be a different color.

Mabry, a defensive tackle from San Antonio's MacArthur High School, was an honorable mention All-Conference USA selection his final two seasons as a Roadrunner and second among the team's defensive linemen with 49 tackles last year. Wade, a defensive back from Tyler, was the most decorated player in school history. He was a semifinalist for the 2014 Jim Thorpe Award – for the nation's top defensive back – a three-time all-conference honoree and two-year team captain who set a school record of 293 tackles in his career. Both men had outstanding college careers that allowed them to make UTSA history.

Did you know? Mabry and Wade both agreed to terms as undrafted free agents with the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks, respectively, becoming the first UTSA players to move to the professional ranks.
