Cross-Campus Collaborative Research Fund (CCCRF)
Unfortunately, due to budget restrictions, there will be no regular CCCRF competition in 2014.
The Cross-Campus Collaborative Research Fund (CCCRF) aims to stimulate pilot research projects between School of Medicine and Reynolda Campus faculty that will generate extramural funding for both institutions. Up to $20,000 will be awarded for each project. The number of projects awarded is contingent on the availability of funds.
The project period is 1 year, with the possibility of a 1-year, no-cost extension. When the grant is awarded, accounts will be established on each campus and the budget divided accordingly. Funds will be disbursed on the written authority of the investigators or designated representatives. Unless an extension (without additional funds) is requested in writing 10 days prior to the end date, any unexpended balance will be returned to the main account. Within 90 days after the grant terminates, a final progress report must be submitted to the Reynolda Campus Office of Research and Sponsored Programs. It should describe how the CCCRF contributed to the preparation and/or funding of extramural grant applications.
Applications will be evaluated on scientific merit, originality, significance, potential to generate extramural funding, and the benefits of, and need for, the collaboration.
I. Cover Form - The 2-page cover form should be completed and signed by both principal investigators and their respective department chairs.
II. Project Description - The proposal should be sufficiently detailed to be clear to a committee of general scientists. Figures, tables, and other graphic representations may be included to enhance clarity.
III. Personnel - Designate all associates, research assistants, technicians, or students involved in the project and describe their expertise.
IV. Research Support - List facilities, equipment, and funding from other sources. If departmental or other support is available or pending, explain the need for CCCRF support.
V. Budget - ($20,000 maximum) Funds can be requested for research supplies and services, technical assistance, publication expenses, equipment, animal costs, and travel between campuses, including parking fees.
Funds for faculty salary and secretarial support will not be considered. Funds for graduate and undergraduate student support are rarely granted, since they can usually be obtained through the Graduate School or WFU Undergraduate Research Fellowships. Funds for technical support staff have been granted occasionally, since there is no other campus source for these research costs. If requesting funds to support technical staff, remember to include appropriate fringe benefits and attach a detailed budget and a budget justification page.
If additional funding will be needed for the collaboration, indicate the source and amount of this support. Clarify how the budget will be divided between the two campuses.
VI. Biosketch - Attach a current biosketch, in NIH format, for each principal investigator.
