Collaborative Research Grants

The purpose of the DCII Collaborative Research Grant Program is to support teams of two or more researchers as they pursue research projects on topics of interdisciplinary interest and impact. The program seeks to enable faculty to advance their individual research agendas while building connections across campus. 

Teams draw members from at least two academic departments and include at least one full-time Dedman College faculty member (either tenure-track or professional and teaching faculty), but teams can also include faculty members from other SMU schools and/or graduate students. Teams receive funding to support research-related travel, the purchase of research supplies or software, and other direct research expenses.
