     Collaboration Fund

    The Research Collaboration Fund supports research collaboration among faculty and students working on interdisciplinary research topics. Example uses of funding include organization of workshops, seminars, application of collaborative technologies, retreats and development of online resources. Each collaboration should engage a large group of faculty (normally 10 or more), representing at least two schools at USC. Funding can be for up to three years, with the possibility of competitive renewal thereafter.
