Current Funding Opportunities and Institutional Seed Grants

Connecting through Research Partnerships Program (Connect)

The Connecting through Research Partnerships (Connect) Program sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Research (VPR) at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) and the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), is a grant opportunity offered to enhance greater scientific collaboration between the two institutions and to increase both UTSA’s and SwRI’s research-funding base with cross-campus collaborative programs. The program encourages interaction between investigators in support of the acquisitions of established extramural, peer-reviewed research funding. This agreement provides unprecedented opportunities for researchers to work together in addressing issues of mutual interest and need.
