President's Research Excellence Program now accepting proposals

Submitted by Kris Boone, boone.3@osu.edu

The President’s Research Excellence (PRE) program is officially accepting proposals designed to seed support for cross disciplinary and interdisciplinary research that will attract external funding.

PRE is specifically looking to fund two distinct proposal types: 

  • Accelerator proposals for small teams formed to pursue curiosity-driven, novel, high-risk and high-reward research. The grants may be up to $50,000.
  • Catalyst proposals for interdisciplinary teams to pursue large-scale, high-impact research that addresses emerging or existing challenges of national and international societal importance while generating long-term, sustained, impact, which positions Ohio State as THE leader in this area. These grants may be up to $200,000.

To learn more about each proposal type, view deadlines and submit a proposal please visit the President's Research Excellence program webpage.
