University Committee on Research and Creative Activity.
The purpose of the University Committee on Research and Creative Activity (UCRCA) is to expand the capacity for research and creative activity at UNO. The UCRCA makes funding recommendations to the Associate Vice Chancellor for Research and Creative Activity in as fair and as transparent a way as possible and supports all areas, types and disciplines of research and creative activity by pre- and post- tenured faculty and graduate and undergraduate students at UNO. The Committee is interdisciplinary—members represent each of the colleges and various departments across the campus—and are recommended for appointment by the Faculty Senate to serve three-year terms. Funding for UCRCA comes from Facilities and Administrative Costs resulting from external grant and contract funding.
The University Committee on Research and Creative Activity (UCRCA) is now accepting proposals for the 2014-2015 academic year.
Submission deadlines for FACULTY FULL PROPOSALS are November 3, 2014 and February 1, 2015.
For FACULTY MINIGRANTS, the deadline is the first working day of each month (October 2014 – February 2015) by 11:59 pm (CDT).
STUDENT PROPOSALS are due the first working day of each month (October 2014 - February 2015) by 11:59 pm (CDT).
If dates fall on a weekend or holiday, the proposals will then be due the following workday at 11:59pm (CDT).
