The following programs are not available at this time.

Collaborative Biomedical Research Award (CoBRA)

The UT Dallas Collaborative Biomedical Research Award (CoBRA) grant program is a funding mechanism designed to stimulate interdisciplinary research collaborations between faculty at UT Dallas and the UT Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW) that will lead to external funding. Supported and led by the Office of Research and Innovation, this program will be offered annually pending the availability of resources. Successful proposals will include faculty members serving as PIs from both UT Dallas and UTSW.

Major Extramural Grant Award (MEGA)

The UT Dallas M.E.G.A. (Major Extramural Grant Award) Grant Competition is an internal funding mechanism designed to support the pursuit of a major extramural funding opportunity. These funds will enable acquisition of new equipment, group/meeting coordination and travel, and/or performance of key experiments to best position UT Dallas faculty to compete for large awards. In addition, funds can be used to support a fraction of summer salary or a negotiated buy-out of teaching obligations for one or more faculty on the team to focus on assembling a major funding proposal. The targeted extramural award must have a total budget to UT Dallas of no less than $6M for the total award period and must include full indirect costs.

Strategic Center Investment (SCI) Program

The UT Dallas Strategic Center Investment (SCI) Grant Program is an internal funding mechanism designed to seed innovative centers that aggregate collaborative faculty to address problems of significance. For the purposes of this program, the proposed center will be housed and report to at least one school within UT Dallas. Cooperation between schools with secondary and perhaps tertiary participation is encouraged.

DC Symposium Grant Competition

Symposiums in the Washington D.C. area offer an opportunity to convene scientists, engineers, and scholars from academia and industry with policymakers and program managers within the federal government. The Office of Research and Innovation seeks proposals for symposiums that are led by The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) faculty but hosted in Washington, D.C., utilizing The University of Texas System Space (1750 Pennsylvania Avenue, Suite 900) which provides accommodations for approximately 50 individuals. It is expected that the symposium will bring thought leaders from within and outside of UT Dallas with the goal of influencing the formation of new programmatic research opportunities or funding mechanisms in an important area of inquiry. However, UT Dallas faculty should be leaders in the field related to the symposium topic. Symposiums that focus on the review of academic programs, curriculum development, university operations, or teaching methodologies will not be supported through this mechanism.

Core Facilities Voucher Program (CFVP)

This is an internal funding program designed to enable facility access to faculty whose project is not yet externally funded.

Center for Emergent Novel Technology at the Innovation Quarter (CENT-IQ)

In partnership with the City of Richardson (CoR), UT Dallas aims to establish a presence at the Innovation Quarter effective January 2022. Formerly known as the Startech building (1302 E Collins Blvd, Richardson), CoR has committed funds to revitalize the space with the goal of creating a nexus for CoR, new/existing industries, and UT Dallas.  The UT Dallas presence is expected to include multiple programs, departments, and schools that can leverage the substantial space provided to UT Dallas. This RFP seeks concepts for a new center to be located at the IQ that has the potential to capitalize on interactions with industry and advance the University’s strategic goals. Center themes include, but are not limited to: applied artificial intelligence, automated mobility technology and testing, big data analytics, and health care informatics.

Small Animal Imaging Facility Voucher Program

The Small Animal Imaging Facility (SAIF) for Cancer Research Voucher Program is an internal funding mechanism designed to: (1) enable facility access to faculty whose project is not yet externally funded, (2) support extension of data for current projects, (3) raise awareness of the various SAIF resources available to researchers on campus, and (4) encourage use of SAIF resources and stimulate interdisciplinary research collaborations. 

Mobility Technology Grant

Mobility Technology Seed Grants incentivize faculty to develop mobility solutions through the submission of external proposals to the North Texas Center for Mobility Technologies (NTCMT). This RFP seeks proposals that align with the NTCMT funding criteria and have strong industrial support and funding. Mobility Technology Seed Grants that focus on the review of academic programs, curriculum development, University operations, or teaching methodologies will not be supported through this mechanism.
