Description

4-VA collaborative research grants establish unprecedented partnerships between faculty and universities, building rich research communities across the Commonwealth. The collaborative nature of the research maximizes university resources and leverages faculty expertise. Highly specialized laboratory equipment at one 4-VA university can be shared to advance the research at a partner university. Undergraduate and graduate research opportunities can support mentorships and build a pipeline for graduate programs. As a result, Virginia has generated new research topics, stronger proposals, and increased submissions to external granting agencies.
