Request for Proposals: Mizzou Advantage Round 2 Funding Opportunities
Metadata[+] Show full item record
The second call for proposals for Mizzou Advantage grant funding requests two types of proposals: network grants and seed (formerly "fellow") grants. Network grants foster communication between scholars in diverse areas, helping focus thinking on key topics and helping identify areas in which networks exist but are lacking one or more key elements for success, while seed grants provide initial funding for projects which will result in more specific, tangible outcomes, such as larger project proposals to granting agencies, major conferences which will reposition Mizzou in the eyes of policymakers, funders and leading scholars, or shape larger state, national or international research priorities. The two may overlap conceptually, but network proposals generally improve communication and dialogue among scholars and stakeholders, while seed proposals provide initial funding to realize a more specific and tangible goal.
