UTA Funded Programs:
Interdisciplinary Research Program (IRP)
The Interdisciplinary Research Program is intended to advance interdisciplinary research at UTA in alignment with the four guiding themes of the Strategic Plan: Health and the Human Condition, Sustainable Urban Communities, Global Environmental Impact and Data-Driven Discovery.
As these guiding themes are inherently interdisciplinary, this program fosters the necessary work across campus to improve our ability to effectively compete for major extramural research grant funding on these topics.
As such, the IRP gives preference to proposals that span interdisciplinary work across groups that don’t typically collaborate. A requirement of IRP award recipients is submission of at least one interdisciplinary research proposal to an extramural funding source by the end of the award period.
Research Enhancement Program (REP) Grants
Research Enhancement Program (REP) grants are awarded specifically for the support of research and professional creative activity. The grant serves as seed funding for launching new research and serves as a foundation for future research and funding from external sources. Any full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty member of The University of Texas at Arlington is eligible to apply for a Research Enhancement Program grant. The budget for a Research Enhancement Program grant proposal submitted by a single investigator is up to $10,000; a proposal submitted by two or more investigators is up to $15,000, regardless of the number of collaborating faculty.
