  • interdisciplinary and cross-institutional collaboration
  • entrepreneurial, diversity and community endeavors
  • faculty initiated projects
  • attendance at national conferences
  • training programs

Visiting Scholar Grants are offered on a rolling basis to NSF departments to co-sponsor distinguished academics to come to UC to speak.
