Grants of up to $25,000 and grants of up to $90,000 to South Dakota academic personnel at eligible institutions of higher education for research activities that can enhance in-state commercial development and economic growth. Funding is intended for individual or collaborative efforts.
The goal of the Competitive Research Grant (CRG) Program is four-fold:
Researchers may apply for awards in one of two tracks. Track I grant awards may not exceed $90,000 and are intended to cover salaries, post-doctoral assistance, student support, start-up packages, or infrastructure-related expenditures that are necessary to advance a research agenda, with an emphasis on acquiring external grant awards. A minimum of three Track I grant awards will be available in FY21. Track II grant awards may not exceed $25,000. Grants in this track are intended to cover salaries, student/staff support, or modest infrastructure-related expenditures that may be used to facilitate a record of successful external grant submissions. A minimum of three Track II grant awards will be available in FY21.
Priority will be given to projects (1) in research and innovation areas that create pathways to placement in South Dakota for students after graduation, including workforce or enrollment in graduate/PhD programs, and (2) which have the potential to sustain themselves beyond the funding provided by the CRG Program, whether it be by competing for external funding or otherwise.
It is the responsibility of the proposal author to demonstrate that the criteria are met:
1. The proposed research should be a high priority for a federal, state or private sector funding agency (or agencies) as indicated in agency strategic plans and/or recent funding patterns of the agency. This criterion is to ensure that the potential for longterm funding and building of a successful research program is available.
2. The research should build upon the expertise and experience of the faculty member who has an idea, concept, or hypothesis they wish to research and exploit so that they can help expand the university system’s research capacity.
3. The research should have the potential for development of a commercial product, entity, or bringing of substantial new programmatic resources to the university.
4. The proposal should engage undergraduate students in research and innovation projects that advance the institution’s undergraduate mission.
5. Preference will be given to the seven key research and development areas identified in the 2020 Vision: The South Dakota Science and Innovation Strategy, which include:
