SunGrant/DOT 2007 Competitive Grants Program Awardees

In March 2007, the Southeastern Sun Grant Center announced the availability of its regional competitive grants program with a Request for Applications, which was sent to key contacts at all land-grant universities in the region.  The RFA outlined two grant categories: Integrated Projects with a maximum funding request of $300,000 for a period of up to three years; and Seed Grants of up to $50,000 for a one year period.

In total, more than 130 Letters of Intent were submitted, resulting in 93 full proposals by the submission deadline.  Full proposals were received from 11 different land-grant universities in the southeast region.

After extensive review by a panel from academic, business and government sectors with expertise in all the DOT research priority areas, 13 proposals were selected for funding.
