Application Preparation

This information is specific to the 2022-2023 RFA. Any changes for 2023-2024 will be posted here by early Fall 2023.

Data Collection, Resubmission, and Investigatory Grants

$10,000 to $150,000 total for one- or two-years (not to exceed $75,000 per year)

Grants are available to support new and existing research collaborations at two or more Nebraska campuses to either 1) Generate preliminary data critical to extramural research proposals or resubmissions, 2) Initiate new exploratory research that, with further development, would be the basis for an extramural grant application, or 3) Develop capabilities that allow the University of Nebraska’s National Strategic Research Initiative (NSRI) to meet the needs of its sponsor (U.S. Strategic Command) as well as the broader Department of Defense community.

Idea and Innovation Exploration Grants

$5,000 to $25,000 total for one or two years

Grants are available to allow faculty to explore ideas and innovations that will be expected to lead to new invention disclosures. These grant applications do not require multi-campus collaborators, are for activities not supportable by existing or traditional grant funding, and should be focused on research that strengthens evidence for the feasibility of an initial idea, innovation, or concept that will eventually result in a new invention. In addition to NU campus reviewers, applications for this grant type will be reviewed by NUtech Ventures and UNeMed representatives.
