Doctoral Infrastructure 2013-14
Matching Funds to Enhance Institutional Infrastructure for Doctoral Research FY2014
This program is supported by one-time funds that were provided by the State Legislature to enhance PhD programs in STEM research fields. The allocation of funds for this activity is $75,000 - $150,000.
STEM @ USU – At Utah State University, we define the STEM degrees as those encompassed in the colleges of Science, Natural Resources, Agriculture and Applied Sciences, Engineering, and Education. Though components of some degrees in some traditionally non-STEM colleges may focus on teaching STEM fundamentals, for this competition we have remained focused on a college level distinction as noted above.
Eligible Colleges or Departments may apply for these funds, which require a 1:1 dollar match. Priority will be given to proposals that address infrastructure constraints that limit the size and success of PhD programs in STEM fields.
