Cross-Disciplinary Research Fund


The goal of the Cross-Disciplinary Research Fund (CDRF) is to establish collaborative research partnerships within chartered centers and institutes or between two or more diverse disciplines that encourage strong applications to externally funded opportunities. External funds awarded as a result of this program must be processed, set-up and managed as a sponsored project with the appropriate indirect cost rate.


CDRF Co-Investigators must meet the eligibility requirements of being a principal investigator (PI) on an externally funded project. PI eligibility is determined by the schools. Please note that the Institutional Review Board (IRB) will continue to have its own criteria in accordance with their accrediting body’s guidelines.

All required documents for the CDRF competition can also be found in the InfoReady portal.
