The Game-Changing Research Incentive Program (GRIP), allocates more than $1,500,000 over three years to fund exceptional research teams and projects that span NC State colleges. GRIP is intended to incentivize and support visionary research ideas that will result in large-scale extramural funding, award-winning research impacts, and first-class interdisciplinary graduate education and training. You can watch this video and hear a little more about the program.
GRIP awards will follow a two-phase application process including a two-page pre-proposal, selection of up to 10 pre-proposals for further consideration, and review of eight-page final proposals.
