(Feb. 16, 2011)--To help researchers kick-start a variety of projects, the UTSA Office of the Vice President for Research (VPR) is accepting proposals for the Collaborative Research Seed Grant Program (CRSGP), the Tenure-track Research Award Competition (TRAC), CONNECT funding and Cibolo Preserve projects.

CRSGP and TRAC proposals are due Monday, March 7. Connect proposals are due Monday, March 21. Cibolo Preserve proposals are due Monday, April 11, but will be reviewed on a rolling basis. All proposals must be submitted to the Office of the Assistant Vice President for Research in Multidisciplinary Studies Building Room 4.03.55, Main Campus, by 5 p.m. on the specified deadline date.

CRSGP proposals encourage collaboration within UTSA and with UTSA's external research partners such as industries and the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Eligible proposals will span multiple departments from within a single college (maximum award: $25,000), or multiple UTSA colleges, centers or institutes or a single UTSA organization with collaborators from one or more outside organizations (maximum award: $30,000).

TRAC proposals encourage UTSA assistant professors to pursue research in one of UTSA's five areas of research excellence: health, security, energy and the environment, sustainability, and human and social development. TRAC proposals must include a completed application, budget, five-page narrative and the primary investigator's curriculum vitae.

In partnership with Southwest Research Institute, UTSA is accepting funding proposals to support research in advanced materials, chemistry and chemical engineering, energy, the environment, manufacturing and security that include a minimum of one principal investigator from each organization and are likely to lead to external funding. Up to $200,000 is available for collaborative research through the CONNECT program.

VPR also is seeking proposals to conduct research and educational projects at the Cibolo Preserve, a 500-acre tract east of Boerne in Kendall County. Bisected by a creek, the land is characterized by its beauty, a variety of flora and fauna, and geological features such as a narrow canyon through a large exposure of caprinid reef and areas of architectural interest. Approved projects may be awarded up to $3,000.
