In line with its mission as a social sciences research collaboration incubator, Project Mosaic has established a new seed grants program specifically geared towards the formation of new teams of researchers in the social, behavior, and economic sciences for the explicit aim of pursuing external funding.
The Collaborative Seed Grants (CSG) Program targets funding requests in the range of $5,000 to $12,000 that are critically important in the early stages of the formation of a team, early stages of development of research ideas, or even in assembling a pilot data set or conducting a small case study that can be used to suggest the usefulness of a concept to secure a larger external grant. All proposals must be submitted by a team of UNC Charlotte researchers in different disciplines (which commonly would mean different departments). Some team members may hail from traditions other than the social sciences (e.g., natural sciences, statistics, engineering, etc.). Although collaborators external to UNC Charlotte may be included, our focus is on supporting the formation of new research teams based at UNC Charlotte.
- CSG proposals range from $5,000-$12,000.
- CSG proposals should be concise and must be submitted by May 15 at 5pm.
- The Project Mosaic Director will appoint a review committee to evaluate the proposals whose purpose will be to advise on the funding priorities of the CSG Program
