Through Internal Seed Grant Programsfunded by the Office of the Vice President for Research, Economic Development and Knowledge Enterprise (VPREDKE), six separate programs yielded 87 applications, which are currently under peer review. Programs include Internal Research Awards (INTRA), Grants for Research Advancement and Transformation (GREAT), Transdisciplinary Teams Program (T2), Connecting Researchers through Partnerships (Connect), a collaborative program with Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), and the ITESM Seed Grant Program, a collaborative program with Tecnológico de Monterrey (ITESM). In an effort to also increase the number of nationally recognized faculty at UTSA, five faculty received support for their 2020 National Academy of Inventors nomination packages.
