UC Research Initiatives in the UC Office of the President is pleased to issue a Request for Proposals for the 2019 UC Multicampus Research Programs and Initiatives, which includes opportunities for both Planning/Pilot Awards and Program Awards. Please note that a Letter of Intent (LOI; due 5/24/2018) is required, and all proposals must conform to the requirements of this RFP, dated April 25, 2018.
The MRPI opportunity is open to UC faculty and researchers across all fields of research and scholarship. Proposals require collaboration among at least three UC campuses and should go beyond individual PI-driven projects to launch pioneering research in thematic, multidisciplinary, or inter-disciplinary areas, benefit the UC research enterprise, strengthen UC's position as a leading public research university, and benefit California and its people. Applicants may request up to two years of funding. It is anticipated that there is approximately $8 million in total available funding across all awards and award types for the two-year period.
Please review the Request for Proposals carefully. It includes important information on eligibility and application requirements. The RFP includes Appendices on Instructions for Submission of Letters of Intent and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).
