Industry-University Cooperative Research Centers Program (IUCRC)
17-516 (replaces 16-504)
Full announcement

Full proposal (preliminary proposal due 10/17/2018).  The Industry-University Cooperative Research Centers (IUCRC) program develops long-term partnerships among industry, academe, and government. The Centers are catalyzed by an investment from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and are primarily supported by industry Center members, with NSF taking a supporting role in the development and evolution of the Center. Each Center is established to conduct research that is of interest to both the industry members and the Center faculty. An IUCRC contributes to the nation's research infrastructure base and enhances the intellectual capacity of the engineering and science workforce through the integration of research and education. As appropriate, an IUCRC uses international collaborations to advance these goals within the global context.

CAS Building Use Credits (BUC)
Full announcement

Annual deadlines vary, see webpage for more information. Each year, the college receives money from the University, generated from overhead, for building upgrades. BUC funds are distributed and expected to be used according to OMB Circular A-21. They may only be used for the liquidation of a principle debt incurred to acquire assets that are used directly for organized research activities, or payments to acquire, repair, renovate, or improve buildings directly used for organized research. The college recommends projects from among unit proposals submitted to the Dean’s Office.

The CAS BUC form should be used to submit unit requests (please submit a separate form for each request). If there is more than one request from your unit, please indicate the priority order of your proposed projects. If appropriate, attach supporting information.

In prioritizing CAS’ projects, consideration will be given to requests which support the research for multiple AES scientists. The level of matching funds would also be evaluated in the review of requests. Health/safety considerations, operational need, as well as budget soundness, level of reserves, returned overhead generated in previous year, and current status of BUC expenditures, are also used as decision criteria.
