The College of Arts and Sciences’ Interdisciplinary Research and Innovation Seed Grant Program is designed to help faculty generate new ideas and foster interdisciplinary team building.

For Fall 2019, CAS is partnering with the Graduate School, CAHNRS, the College of Nursing, and EFSCOM to fund multiple projects.
