The UT Dallas SPARK Grant is an internal funding mechanism designed to provide research and professional development support to establish the research portfolio of Associate and Full Professors that have not received external funding in the past 24+ months. This program is designed to spark both internal and external collaborations, gain new training, obtain preliminary data or pursue new research directions. The goal of the seed grant is to provide preliminary results and establish credibility in a new research area that will attract high-impact research funding from the state and federal government, industry, or foundations.
