Cross-Disciplinary Research Fund

Purpose

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.
