The Offices of the Provost and Executive Vice President for Research (EVPR) are excited to continue the GT-FIRE program. A significant element of this program supports feasibility studies of high-risk, transformative ideas in research and/or education.
Fund for Transformative Research and Education
Funds may be requested for high-risk, potentially transformative, innovative ideas in research or education. Funding decisions will be made with a heavy emphasis on innovation and transformative potential. Of particular interest in education are novel ways of increasing student- faculty interaction in the classroom, as well as projects with the end goal of nurturing innovation/creativity in our students. Proposals will be reviewed by a committee comprised of GT faculty members.
Investigators can be PI on only one proposal but may serve as co-PIs or team members on as many proposals as they like.
Single investigators or teams may apply for up to a maximum of $40,000 in funding for up to two years.
Faculty salary support is not encouraged, but will be considered under exceptional circumstances.
There are no indirect costs but tuition remission must be included where appropriate.
The deadline for requests is March 31, 2014 for a July 1, 2014 start date.
