Voelte-Keegan Bioengineering Fund
Voelte-Keegan Bioengineering Fund
This fund supports small grant requests to generate preliminary data to support proposals for future funding or to broaden the scope of a currently funded project. Requests for operating costs for ongoing projects, rather than a distinct set of experiments toward a unique new goal, will receive lower priority for funding.

The deadline for the first round of applications is February 10, 2021. Beginning in 2022, proposals will be due November 1. See solicitation for details.

UNL Grand Challenges

University of Nebraska-Lincoln
Grand Challenges Catalyst Competition
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln community has identified seven grand challenge thematic areas in which to focus its expertise and resources, as outlined in the N2025 Strategic Plan. The Chancellor's Office and the Office of Research and Economic Development have committed $40 million over four years to invest in strategic, goal-based solutions.

Two types of support are available through the Grand Challenges Catalyst Competition: planning grants, for which proposals must describe the teaming, ideation, and development activities necessary for collaborative groups to coalesce around one or more of UNL's grand challenge themes; and catalyst awards, for which proposals must describe a plan of work for implementing a goal-based project developed in response to one or more of UNL's grand challenge themes.

A required notice of intent to submit is due on the last day of February annually, with applications due the last Friday in April. See solicitation for details.
