Building on the success of early rounds of funding provided by the UW2020: WARF Discovery Initiative awards, researchers are invited to apply for Round 4 funding.
The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education is accepting applications for funding from high-risk, high-impact research proposals. UW2020 funds both investigative and infrastructure projects at UW–Madison and UW–Extension, with the goal of supporting collaborative, multidisciplinary and transformative research.
Round 4 funding will be provided for one to two years, depending on the needs and scope of the project. Awards range from $100,000 to $500,000. An initial submission of a brief abstract is due by Oct. 16, with full proposals due Dec. 4. UW2020 is funded by the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF), with support from UW–Extension.
