The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board has released a request for applications for the 2013 Norman Hackerman Advanced Research Program. The program provides two-year grants of up to $100,000 for basic research at Texas universities.
This year’s NHARP program targets two areas: basic research in biomedicine and basic research in energy and the environment. Any early career principal investigator — a non-tenured, tenure track faculty member or research professional — may apply to the program.
Prospective applicants to the program must submit a pre-proposal by 5:00 p.m. CDT on Oct. 31. Full proposals from selected applicants will be due on Feb. 20, 2014.
