4-VA at UVA Collaborative Research Grant Opportunity

Good afternoon:

Letters of intent (LOI) are now being accepted for the 2021 4-VA Collaborative Research Grant program. Each UVA Collaborative Research Grant proposal may request up to $25,000 in funding from 4-VA at UVA.

4-VA is a partnership between eight Virginia institutions (UVA, VT, JMU, ODU, VCU, GMU, W&M, and VMI) whose mission is to promote inter-university collaborations that leverage the strengths of each partner university. One of the many 4-VA initiatives, Collaborative Research, is intended to improve research competitiveness within the Commonwealth by providing funding for faculty teams to engage in pilot research that could be used as a springboard for subsequent external funding. 4-VA at UVA Collaborative Research Grants are open to all UVA faculty.

All interested applicants must submit a letter of intent via the below InfoReady link by Friday, January 29, 2021 (full proposals will be due March 19). LOIs will not require any materials to be uploaded, and will ask only a few short questions of each applicant. All applicants who submit a LOI will be invited to proceed to the full proposal stage. Full proposal information is available via the below link.

For questions related to the Collaborative Research Grants program, or 4-VA more generally, please contact Matt Banfield, assistant vice provost for academic affairs.
