(April 26, 2011)--The UTSA Office of the Vice President for Research and the Texas Sustainable Energy Research Institute announce the launch of the Energy Research Grant program, a new seed grant program to fund multidisciplinary energy research.

Up to $100,000 in grants will be awarded through the program, which challenges faculty to develop novel approaches to technology insertion, policy formation and community interactions for the purpose of reducing energy costs, improving systems reliability and assuring responsible environmental stewardship.

>> Learn more about the new seed grant program at the UTSA Research website.

The application process will proceed in two phases. Phase I requires a presentation of no more than 10 minutes including background related to the problem addressed, research/practical challenges, research approach, anticipated outcome and budget.

Research teams that pass Phase I must submit a full proposal in Phase II of the application process. The proposals, due by 4 p.m., Monday, July 25, must include:

  • Completed application
  • Detailed budget for the UTSA private investigator and budget justification
  • Separate budget and statement of work for each outside collaborator
  • Five-page maximum narrative, excluding citations
  • CVs for lead and co-PIs

Proposals will be evaluated according to their potential and significance, alignment with the institute's priorities, innovation, approach, clarity for non-specialized audiences, collaboration environment and potential for outside funding.

Final funding decisions will be announced in August 2011.

To learn more about the UTSA Energy Research Grant program, visit the UTSA Research website 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.
