Presidential Initiative for Interdisciplinary Research (PIIR)

November 21, 2016

Further, the area of scholarship should likely be such that more than one agency may support the work.

Lead investigator should be a full or associate professor.
Award amount: Annual $100,000-$200,000 per team up to 3 year period. 10% cost share with college(s) is expected.
