RAC accepting proposals starting Feb. 1

UNM voting faculty are invited to submit proposals for internal funding for small grants (budgets that are less than $4,000 per proposal), and large grants (budgets between $4,000 and a maximum of $10,000 per proposal), with proposal duration of 18 months from the receipt of funds.


We have recently modified the review rubric for proposals and implemented a system of ranking RAC priorities, and we invite all interested to please submit proposals. RAC funding is intended to represent the diversity of research on our campus.


Please note that if you have received a RAC grant in the past, and have an overdue final report, you may log in under My Proposals at https://rac.unm.edu/ to upload a final report. Final reports for previous RAC grants are required for consideration of subsequent funding. 


The proposal submission guidelines are available at the UNM RAC website: https://rac.unm.edu/guidelines/


The proposals are to be submitted online at https://rac.unm.edu/spring-2021/ beginning February 1, 2021. The proposal submission deadline is February 15, 2021.

If you are HSC faculty, you are not eligible for this award. HSC has its own RAC award for HSC faculty. For more information on the HSC RAC award, please visit: https://hsc.unm.edu/research/rac/index.html
