Chancellor’s Innovation and Collaboration Fund
The Chancellor’s Innovation and Collaboration Fund offers funding to foster interdisciplinary collaboration, developing creativity and seeding early stage, previously unfunded discovery at the University of Arkansas.
The fund prioritizes cutting-edge ideas and collaborations and seeks to support “early stage” research that often doesn’t qualify for external funding. Faculty are encouraged to submit proposals that promote discovery through interdisciplinary efforts.
