We want to thank everyone who submitted proposals to the NC State University and Virginia Tech collaborative grants program. We received 31 proposals for consideration in this second year of the joint program to enhance our collaborative efforts and ultimately our colleges. Proposals submitted were evaluated by peer reviewers and by a joint review panel from both universities.
We are very pleased to announce that the following proposals were selected for funding. These represent many different areas — basic research, applied research, outreach, teaching, plants, animals, various departments, and disciplines. We hope that you are excited about the collaborations between these schools and the diversity that these proposals represent.
Congratulations to the winners!
