2020 Grants Program

In January 2020, the Consortium released a Request for Proposals (RFP) for research proposals from investigators at the different consortium member institutions.

The proposals were reviewed by ad-hoc out-of-state faculty reviewers with demonstrated expertise in the respective research area. Funding recommendations were then made after thoughtful and careful consideration at the Consortium Board meeting in June.

Below is the list of the 9 awarded proposals and their principal investigators, the proposal titles, and their respective member institutions.
