Research Initiatives for Science and Engineering (RISE)
Each year, the Office of the EVPR sponsors a competition for RISE funding. These seed monies enable researchers to initiate a project to test a theory in development or a novel idea in order to gather the data necessary to then secure external funding. Interdisciplinary projects are favored. These formal announcements are sent via email to the University community, and contain the details on proposal submission, availability of funds, eligibility and deadlines.
