The Center for Sustainability established the Sustainability Research Fund (SRF) to support promising research projects that have strong potential to attract external grant funding. These internal awards are aimed at assisting in the collection of data that the applicant will use as the basis for an extramural grant or contract application.
Consistent with the Center's mission, the Sustainability Research Fund supports projects that promote multi-disciplinary approaches aimed at first discovering the causal factors of sustainability-related issues and, second, identifying integrated solutions. Of particular interest (although not required) are projects that encourage discoveries that may have a direct impact in a relatively short period of time. Projects targeted at improving the quality of life of underserved populations will be given high priority.
