The goal of the SCoRe award is to enhance the UNO faculty’s ability to successfully compete for extramural sponsored research funding. The SCoRe award is intended as seed money for faculty to develop a new area of research activity and it is expected that a SCoRE award will result in a proposal being submitted to an external funding agency. Funding priorities include collection of preliminary data, planning and writing of grant proposals for external funding, maintenance of laboratory activities while preparing for a new area of research, and the purchase of research equipment. As a rule, the SCoRe award will not be used for on-going support of existing projects for which outside funding might reasonably be expected. Funding can be requested for graduate student support, undergraduate assistance, up to one month of PI regular salary (plus current fringe benefits rate), research supplies, travel and scientific equipment. Cap: $20,000.

The proposal must be in one of the five emerging growth sectors for Louisiana as identified by the Board of Regents statewide Master Plan Research Advisory Committee (MPRAC). The five MPRAC areas are: advanced materials and manufacturing; clean technology & energy; coastal and water management; digital media and enterprise software; life sciences and bioengineering. Interdisciplinary approaches may be favored.
